PRESS ARTICLE - 'UNDISCOVERED GEM': The “Undiscovered Gem'” of the Moray Firth has been ranked among the world's most breathtaking coastlines.
The stretch of seafront from Inverness to Peterhead is in “excellent shape, relatively unspoiled, and likely to remain so', according to the National Geographic Traveller magazine.
The firth was placed alongside Namibia's Skeleton Coast and the Chilean Fjords in the magazine's “top-rated' category by a panel of 340 sustainable tourism experts.
Newfoundland's remote Avalon peninsula, New Zealand's Tutukaka Coast, British Columbia's Gulf Islands and Argentina's Valdes Peninsula also scored highly among its top-rated coastal destinations.
The Moray Firth was one of only two UK spots from 18 areas to make it into the “top-rated' cut. The Pembrokeshire Coast in west Wales also secured the accolade.
Judges commended the Moray Firth’s “fantastic beaches” and described it as a “a wonderful region of Scotland” where the area “welcomes visitors as one of their own”.
....Continued: One said: “People work together for the greater good – fishermen tolerate canoeists; farmers allow walkers to pass over their land on footpaths.”
Another judge said it was “an undiscovered gem with pretty coastal villages, excellent beaches, and outstanding cliff scenery'.
The Moray Firth is home to a population of around 130 dolphins, one of only two pods in the UK.
Marine biologist Deborah Benham, who runs Findhorn Bay’s Wild at Heart eco-holidays, said the area’s unique charm lay in its miles of coastline devoid of development.
She added: “There is also a wide range of eco habitats, from great sandy beaches to these lovely bays on the river mouth and the area is also famous for being home to the Findhorn Foundation – the 47-year-old ecovillage which describes itself as the lowest carbon community in Europe.”
....Continued: Visit Scotland's chairman, Mike Cantlay, said it was always exciting to see Scotland showcased on an international stage but the accolade should come as no surprise.
Academy Award-winning actress Tilda Swinton, who lives on the banks of the Moray Firth near Nairn, has long been an advocate of the area.
She said she loves returning to the Moray Firth coastal area.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Linksfield Farmhouse was ideal for our family holiday - close to beach the town etc and had everything required for a self catering break. A good time was had by all.
