The Ramblers Association now have a greatly improved website which is an exceptional rescource for all walkers, hykers and young families wanting to go for walks with young children. This site lists everything from historical walks to guided walks and really audious walks.

Find A Walk Near Me by Walking Britain is a truly excellent and free resource. Just enter where you are or where you would like to walk - and print out directions. The walks are graded and you can buy a specific map of the area at the same time. These are proper OS maps and weather proofed if required.

I always think of walking as one of the few activities you can do for free - and now you can with this guide!

Walking, Hiking and Outdoor Shops

Outfit Moray & Bike Revolution

Shore St, Lossiemouth IV31 6PB, UK – 01343 549571

Bike Revolution is a great place to pick up a bargain bike. I picked up a bike for my daughter for a fraction of the price from other shops. The bikes are second hand refurbished ones but it had been fully serviced, was in good condition and came with a guarantee. The staff where very knowledgeable and helpful. It does depend on what stock they have in at the time but there was several bikes for my daughter to choose from. The bike has lasted a lot longer than her previous one we brought from a well known High Street store.

My daughter took part in the shore scramble during the Easter holidays, she had an amazing time. The staff were fantastic, prompt replies to emails and messages via social media. She has gone again today for another activity, yet again the staff were amazing with her when I dropped her off. Would highly recommend Outfit Moray for future activities.

Grampian Furnishers

44 Queen St, Lossiemouth IV31 6PN, UK – 01343 813271

The new premises they are moving into will be a lot better . Staff are very helpful .

Very good selection at resonable prices

WalkingWorld.jpg
Another good one. Walkingworld has huge library of guides with a good selection of walks, of varying lengths and grades, pretty well anywhere in the UK. The walks come in an excellent format making them very easy to follow, with photographs to illustrate every important decision point and a proper Ordnance Survey map.

A modist annual subscription gives you unlimited access to all the walks. However you can Pay As Go by downloading indiviual walks.

Crucially you can also find walks France, Spain, Norway, Portugal and Australia!

Camping and Caravaning

Silver Sands Camping & Caravan Holidays Moray Firth

Covesea West Beach, Lossiemouth IV31 6SP, UK – 01343 813262

This place is fine for a few days if your camping with family , as the kids will have other kids to play with ! It's on a lovely location with a stunning big beach and interesting caves . The campsite can be noisy at peak season , as people like to let you know they are up and ready at 7am and let the kids run riot ! But many people I encounter on camping sites have zero common sense , hopefully it's not always like that 🤔 the club/ bar needs bulldozed down as its very dated looking both externally / internally and entering the club on the first night it was like a scene from a social club in the early 80's , people are very serious with the Bingo here and your not allowed to utter a word for over an hour !! They all seem to have their big daft bingo pens at the ready , maybe someone deals them onsite ! It's hilarious . For a few days of cheap and cheery fun it's fine any longer then you will need to invest in a bingo pens and join the natives !

Lossiemouth Bay Caravan Park
