On Saturday 15 September 2012, walk for water so others don’t have to.

Burghead to Lossiemouth

Burghead is a peaceful coastal village steeped in history so a perfect walk for those wanting to learn about the local area or keep the little ones entertained! A visit to the the Burghead Visitor Centre to learn about the Pictish Burghead Fort is a must and can also act as a starting point for the coastal walk. After soaking up the ancient history, head along the coast to Hopeman via the old railway line which has great views over the cliffs and skerries of the coast. Curlews from fields visit the shoreline and fulmars glide past the sandstone cliffs. Between Hopeman and Covesea ‘fossil’ dunes can be seen in the cliffs, and exposed surfaces display the footprints of pre dinosaur reptiles that grubbed in the sand with twin tusks – definitely a picture opportunity! From there, follow the sandy beach towards the cliffs and the Covesea lighthouse. Then onwards to the beautiful harbour of Lossiemouth for some well earned food and drinks! Toilets: By the harbour next to the harbourmaster’s office in Burghead. Hopeman Harbour and Lossiemouth West Beach car park. In Station Park by Lossiemouth Harbour
