A Visit To Burghead on the Moray Coast (1 of 2)

We were back again at the excellent Flowerburn Bed and Breakfast in Nairn, an ideal location for discovering the Inverness, Moray and Speyside areas (and beyond).

Here are some other walks that we have done from the same base;

After a chat with our hosts about what they would recommend, we consulted the ‘walkers bible’ the Walk Highlands website,  and decided to go to Burghead for a look around, then have a wander along the Burghead Beach towards Findhorn, leaving options for a further extended walk or a small trip elsewhere.

This post focuses on the harbour area, with another one on Burghead Beach – you can tell, we do like a nice beach.

The harbour is clearly used by fishermen so lots of fishing paraphernalia – piles of nets for instance.

And piles of cables.

This is not a fisherman but a young model in a photo-shoot posing as a fisherman – fairly convincing I guess.

There were many cormorants in and around the harbour – this one is about to take flight.

There was also a friendly harbour seal popping up out of the water.

And here’s Lynn lining up shots of the cormorants that were gathered at the end of the long breakwater at the harbour entrance.

We then headed up to the cliffs at the edge of town to get a better view.

And then back down down and along to the end of the breakwater for a closer look at the cormorants and the small tower at the entrance on this side of the harbour.

On to the next post on Burghead Beach.

Post by Paul and Lynn Henni

A Walk Beside The River Beauly, near Inverness, plus an amble along Nairn Beach.

We used the Flowerburn Bed and Breakfast in Nairn, as our base for the Beauly River walk with our hosts. It is on the Walk Highlands website, as the River Beauly and Lovat Bridge circuit walk and is a nice moderate length for some gentle exercise to help justify some nice food and drink later. We also had an amble along the beach at Nairn.

Here are some other walks that we have done from the same base;

A quick note for photographers – if you go to do this walk, you will be near Fffordes Photographic, a place with a good reputation. We didn’t have time to visit when we were there, so can’t describe it more than that (yet).

And so to the images. Firstly, a mix of natural and man-made with this pylon part of the transmission network from the hydro-electric plant nearby.

And here’s Beaufort Castle, on the River Beauly, emerging from the trees. Former home of Lord Lovat of WW2 Commando fame.

We were on the part of the walk beside the river as the sun broke through to highlight the trees on the bank opposite.

Loch an Eilein and Grantown on Spey #Speyside #Highlands #Scotland #Photo www.henni.photo

Post by Lynn and Paul Henni

Walking in Loch an Eilein & Anagach Woods

Two walks in this post, one at Loch an Eilein, near Aviemore; the other beside the Spey River in the Anagach Woods at Grantown on Spey.

More details on both walks can be found on the excellent Walk Highlands website, which has maps and walk details for Loch an Eilein and Anagach Woods.

Loch an Eilein

On the way to the walk we drove past Loch Feshie, as the sun was getting low.

As we walked around, the sun was setting and then we finished the walk at dusk, equipped with a decent torch for the last part.
