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

Following on from our post on the Burghead Harbour area, here are some shots from our wander along the Burghead Beach towards Findhorn.

There’s an extensive beach that starts just next to the harbour area, with easy access.

Along the beach are old Second World War fortifications, primarily tank traps and pill boxes (bunkers), the majority of which lean at a range of angles due their sandy foundations.

Set back from the beach on part of the range of dunes are some hardy trees that stand up to the North Sea wind blowing across them.

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.

And the standard pier protection.

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

Until you see a real fisherman!

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.
