- ABOUT THE SPOT
Sailing in Lossie East Beach, Moray, Highlands and Islands United Kingdom
From the west, the West Bay is a 4.8 km/3 mi long beach, mainly formed by sand. The second one is called the East Bay Beach and this one is mostly preferable for sailing activity.
This beach has a large area of sand dunes, which runs perpendicular between the river Lossie and Firth. Wind direction is mostly west – southwest – south and this means that proper wind direction is all year round for sailing. However, best period for visiting the spot is between April to October and there is no busy time during this period.
Only hazard is that you should be aware of any buoys and rocks, especially at low tide.
