About Lossiemouth

The first thing you will notice when you arrive at Lossie is the great views!  

 

Lossiemouth was formed by the combination of 3 villages – Lossiemouth, Branderburgh and Stotfield.

 

The dunes on Lossiemouth East Beach were created in the early 1900s by placing some disused railway carraiges to provide protection for the seatown area of Lossiemouth.
