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

Lossiemouth to Spey Bay

A path with a variety of scenery to enjoy, from Lossiemouth the fine yellow sand of the east beach gives way to shingle and the dunes to the dense pinewood of Lossie Forest. Tank traps by the path and huge gun emplacements overlook the sea. Following the path inland, pass manmade pools full of freshwater life and nesting ducks. Binn Hill has on its seaward side a high fossil sea cliff now covered in trees and is well worth the climb to see its magnificent views. Waves of shingle in the forest mark the site of storm ridges, now high and dry. Passing the ridges, enter the Lein and into Kingston. In Kingston follow the path from Beach road to a farmyard and School Brae past an old 18th Century water tower. From Garmouth cross the viaduct over the Spey and carry on northwards to Spey Bay where you can try your hand at dolphin watching with help from the Moray Firth Wildlife Centre!
