Some of the most picturesque Scottish harbours are located in Moray. Although at one time the busy little harbours from Findhorn to Cullen were the scene of much activity as daily catches were landed, these are now filled with peace and tranquillity. These little gems combine pleasure sailing with the ideal locations for bathing, walking or just a lovely picnic. Lossiemouth, with its large marina and quaint little shops and cafes holds much interest.
A century ago Buckie boasted a fleet of well over 300 steam drifters. The history of the herring fleets, their crews and the herring lassies can now be experienced in the unique Fishing Heritage Centre where the past comes to life. In conjunction with the Heritage Centre visitors may also appreciate the true cost of fish at the Seaman's Memorial Chapel.
