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.

Linksfield Farmhouse has a wonderful location by a long sandy beach on the Moray Firth coast. Close to the famous whisky and castle trails, there is so much to see and do for the whole family. Enjoy life in the great outdoors, enjoy the amazing scenery and explore the history of Scotland. Amongst the attractions are the Duff House and Royal Tarlair Golf courses, the coastline village of Pennan made famous by the film 'Local Hero' and the Macduff Marine aquarium. There are cruises offering daily sightseeing and fishing trips from Banff & Macduff harbours along the scenic Moray Firth coastline where you will see an abundance of sea and bird life including whales and dolphins. Follow the famous whisky trail and sample the 'Water of Life'. Whisky has evolved over more than 500 years to give the range of rich single malts, complex pure malts and distinctive Scotch blends we know today. Visit nearby city of Aberdeen and the highland capital Inverness, both are within driving distance.
Other Activities: Ten Pin Bowling
Golf: DUFFHOUSE ROYAL (http://www.duffhouseroyal.com/) was formed on 21st March 1910 by the late James Braid, and redesigned in 1923 by the brilliant Golf Architect Dr. Alister Mackenzie who later went on to design the famous “Augusta National” course in the USA. The course is a flat, beautifully manicured parkland course with little rough. The large “Mackenzie” two-tiered greens, many well positioned bunkers and trees make the course a severe but fair challenge to golfers of all abilities. The course is bound by the River Deveron, which proves to be a hazard at 3 of the holes. Practice ground, pitching area and putting green are also available. The professional has a well-stocked shop and provides private tuition. The clubhouse has a bar and lounge area, offering commanding views over the first and eighteenth holes with the Hill of Doune and the River Deveron as a backdrop. Full catering facilities are available and visitors are most welcome.
ROYAL TARLAIR (http://www.royaltarlair.co.uk/) is locate on the rugged coastline in the adjacent town of Macduff, the course commands panoramic views of the coastline with the village of Pennan made famous by the film 'Local Hero' closeby. A cliff top parkland course which certainly presents a challenge for the more serious golfer,and offers enjoyable golf in an ideal setting for the not so serious. Visitors are most welcome.
Ski: Scotland has five wintersports centres offer skiing and boarding for all abilities and there are great facilities both on-site and in nearby villages and towns.... http://ski.visitscotland.com/centres/
