Seatown Cottage

Seatown Cottage is a traditional fisherman’s cottage built around 1830. Accommodation comprises two bedrooms, open plan dining, lounge and kitchen, with a separate tv room and a beach front patio area. We were hoping to remove Seatown Cottage from the holiday letting market in January 2023 as we are planning on moving there ourselves in summer 2023. However the schedule has slipped a little, planning permission has been approved, but we are still awaiting the building warrant and a start date. So it is now available until mid March and there are a few odd weeks still available before it closes – these will be your last chance, sorry!

Just a quiet road separates Seatown Cottage from the river Lossie and the bridge across to the fabulous East Beach. The cottage provides bright and airy, family friendly accommodation set in a stunning location. (Your 4 legged friend is welcome too!) A fast broadband service means you can stay in contact if you want to and there is off road parking in front of the door.

The old footbridge bridge was closed in July 2019 due to safety concerns. For over 2 and a half years access to the East Beach was restricted to surfers and paddleboarders and a few hardy souls who waded across at low tide – or walked the 3 miles back along the beach from Arthur’s bridge (a very pleasant 6 mile or so loop, if you have the inclination!) In one busy week at the end of April 2022, there was great excitement round the town as the 4 sections of the new bridge were lowered in place by a massive yellow crane and the bridge was officially opened on 31st May this year. See Lossie Bridge Updates for pictures and the full story. There is also a live stream webcam showing the new bridge and conditions on the beach on YouTube.

So, there’s something seductive about Lossiemouth. The place gets under your skin and into your soul. Dry, sunny climate, rare to find in Scotland; two vast, sweeping, silvery beaches; rugged coastline, abundant with wildlife; majestic Stevenson lighthouse, spectacular views of the Northern Lights…

But more than all of that, it’s just ‘the feel’ the place gives you…

Live your best life…

When you wake and the sun’s shining (as it often does here), it just feels awesome to be alive. As you get ready for the day, you may wonder why you’ve never discovered this hidden gem before.

At sunrise, you can catch West Beach coming alive with dog-walkers, runners and early morning swimmers kicking into the new day. Maybe you’ll join them? 

On East Beach, wetsuit clad figures on their boards pepper the waves, as surf instructors encourage their students to ‘make the drop’. Further along the beach, you may see bright colours overhead as kite-surfers perfect their freestyle tricks. 

Later,  dine out at a local eatery, savouring plates of locally caught langoustine, fresh off the boat and simply served with garlic butter and home-baked bread.

Face the elements…

Ok, we admit it. It’s not sunny all of the time! But when the wind howls and the winter storms blow, it’s not the ‘Lossie way’ to stay indoors! On wet days, you’re likely to find as many people in the water as on the beach. Surfing, kite-surfing, coasteering, paddleboarding, kayaking and wild swimming are all popular here. ‘There’s no such thing as bad weather, just the wrang troosers!’  Wrap up well and embrace the elements. Lean into the wind and fill your lungs with clear Scottish air. At the end of the day, you can return to one of the town’s cosy establishments for a thirst quenching pint or a brimming hot chocolate!

Find your own rhythm…

If you are not tempted by water sports, why not explore the Moray Coastal Path?  Whether walking, hiking, biking or trail running is your thing! Listen to the ebb and flow of the tide as the waves break on the rocky shoreline below. Get into your own natural rhythm as you experience this stunning stretch of coastline. Let your senses feast on the sights and sounds of nature; feed your soul.

Share the secret…

You will love Lossiemouth’s unspoilt location just on the edge of more well-publicised Highland hot spots, so near yet so different in many ways (including the lack of midgies!) So why not come and see what it’s all about?

Lossiemouth is ideal, not just for a beach, golfing or fishing holiday, but also for touring the Malt Whisky and Castle trails, as well as longer day trips to places such as the Cairngorms National Park or Loch Ness.
