In 2007, a feasibility study was produced for Moray Council for an active travel route connecting the coastal communities between Burghead and Lossiemouth. The aim was to offer a safe route to school by means of active travel (e.g cycling, walking, scooting or skating) to all students in the Lossiemouth High School catchment area.

This route would also offer the opportunity for people from the smaller coastal communities to gain access to services, such as the local medical centre, vets, and bus services to Elgin; as well as offering a traffic-free commuting route to workplaces such as RAF Lossiemouth, which employs 10% of Moray’s workforce.

Though it is now a decade old, this feasibility study is a great foundation for our project. The work completed on this study led to the development of the fantastic Burghead to Duffus active travel route, and will help inform further studies into a potential route between Hopeman and Lossiemouth.
