Get on you bike and ride the route or why not rest a while and explore the area’s history, culture and the world famous whisky trail.

The route links the main towns of Moray’s Coast and makes the most of the open views across the Moray Firth, famous for dolphins. Much of the coastline is wild and unspoilt and displays a wide variety of animal and plant life.

Moray’s historic sea towns which are all visited by the route are unique in their rich built heritage founded on the fishing industry. Further information on local settlements and their attractions can be found on the information boards along the cycle route.

Look out for the dolphin logo, and the information boards along the route.

When using on-road sections, care to be taken due to the presence of fast moving vehicular traffic. This is particularly so between Hopeman and Lossiemouth.
