Route Description

This dramatic coastal route gives you glorious views of the Moray Firth. As much of the route is on the line of the old Moray Firth Coast Railway, you can take advantage of the lack of motor traffic to enjoy the spectacular coastline and the fishing villages which seem to cling precariously to it.

Keep an eye out for dolphins, which are often spotted on this stretch of coast. If that isn't enough, this ride gives you the ideal opportunity to judge the rival merits of two serious contenders for the title of Scotland's best ice cream-makers - the Ice Cream Cabin in West Church Street, Buckie, and the Ice Cream Shop in Seafield Street, Cullen.
