Findhorn Bay is a spectacular tidal estuary and home to a wide variety of both migrant and resident birds, including ospreys which are regularly seen fishing on the Bay. The Bay is nationally important for birds with significant numbers of migrant wildfowl and waders. It is also important for water sports and as a tourist destination. Established in 1998 the Local Nature Reserve is managed by local people in partnership with Moray Council and Scottish Natural Heritage.
Please see the map of the Local Nature Reserve for various information panels and parking areas around the Bay.
