Lossiemouth MarinaLossiemouth’s founding fathers were the merchants and civic leaders of Elgin who were in desperate need of a port through which to import and export goods if the royal burgh was to continue to prosper. In recent years the harbour was converted to a yachting marina and the town has become a magnet for weekend sailors from a wide area. With long sandy beaches stretching east and west and an esplanade overlooking the mouth of the River Lossie, the town has always been a popular destination with people from far and near and attracts many holidaymakers in summer.
