About Us

Laich of Moray Active Travel Routes (LoMATR) is a Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation (SCIO) founded in 2020. The organisation aims to provide outdoor recreation facilities and activities for the local community and its visitors; to advance citizenship and community development; and to advance heritage and education by informing the public about the natural environment.

The first goal for LoMATR is completing the 2007 vision for an active travel route connecting the coastal towns, villages, and settlements of Burghead, Cummingston, Hopeman, Covesea and Duffus, to Lossiemouth, offering a safe route to walk, cycle or wheel to school for students at Lossiemouth High School; as well as to services, work, and access to bus services for coastal residents east of Hopeman.

Completing this project would not only connect these coastal communities, but when combined with the existing shared use path network across the Laich of Moray, would offer the opportunity for traffic-free walking, cycling and wheeling all the way from Fochabers to Forres.
