The Moray Coast

Have you seen enough hills for today? Then take a day out to explore the coast during your stay at Bluefolds self-catering cottages. The Moray coastline boasts miles of sandy beaches for endless walks in the fresh air and plenty of great viewing spots to park your car afterwards and enjoy freshly prepared fish and chips.

Out and About, Bluefolds’ Style

Lossiemouth and Findhorn

Trip 1: Steve himself has taken many Bluefolds’ guests on this tour: a leisurely drive to Elgin and onwards to Lossiemouth for coffee at Harbour Lights. On to Burghead Visitor Centre, next stop, Findhorn for the beach and the Kimberley Inn known for its fresh, seasonal food. Time permitting, a nice leisurely drive through Forres to Lochindorb and through Grantown-on-Spey on the way home to Bluefolds.

Baxters and Spey Bay

Trip 2: Enjoy the beautiful drive to Fochabers and stop at Baxters for some retail therapy and a well-known pancake. On to Spey Bay for coastal walks and a visit to the WDC Dolphin Centre. Then enjoy the drive east to visit Huntly Castle; a visit to the very popular Falconry Centre and then home to Bluefolds.

Cullen and RSPB Reserve

Trip 3: For this trip, we have ‘Local Hero’ for you to watch in the Cottages the night before. Again, enjoy the drive to Fochabers; then a leisurely trip along the stunning coast road to Cullen for the famous Cullen Skink soup and carrying on to the Troup Head RSPB Reserve (which involves a walk through rough terrain). Then, on to Penan where you can relive the scenes of Local Hero in the unspoilt village itself before returning home to the Cottages.
