The coastline and settlements of Moray are linked by a waymarked coastal trail of approximately 50 miles from Findhorn to Cullen and all the places between. Many sections of the route can be used for cycling, horseriding, and walking. In wilder locations the path can be steep and rough in places, which would restrict access. Generally, the route is most accessible in the vicinity of the coastal settlements. Less able users should concentrate on using these sections.
The Moray Way website features a comprehensive collection of Moray ways for walking, horse riding, cycling, sailing and canoeing.
