THE ROUTE AND FEATURES OF INTEREST:

Approximately 8miles of sandy beach to allow your horse let off a bit of steam. Most visitors to the beach will tend to stay around the area closest to the car parks so there should be plenty of empty space to have a good gallop, be aware however that there will be the odd dog walker so make sure to be courteous at all times. At the Findhorn end of the beach you come close to the Kinloss runway, the planes don't fly at the weekend but the beach will be busier on these days. The tide at Findhorn can go out for approximately a mile however it comes back in quickly so always check tide tables and be aware. It is best to arrive after high tide this way you will be there as the tide is going out, not coming in. The car park gets very busy at weekends, especially when the weather is good in the
summer so at these times you should park on the access road or in one of the paddocks by the entrance to the forest. Always leave the area tidy and pick up and remove any droppings.
