Banffshire and Moray Coastline a World Beater

Moray's coastline is among the top 20 most beautiful coastal areas in the world, according to the international "National Geographic" Magazine.

A world-wide destinations rating survey, voted for by experts and readers, has placed the Moray coastline amongst 99 other iconic coasts, but rated it better than renowned areas such as the Skeleton Coast in Namibia and New Zealand's Great Barrier Island.

The coastline's outstanding cliff scenery and strong community feeling received plaudits from many contributors.

Hailing the area as a popular vacation spot for more than a century, the magazine describes the coast as offering "outstanding cliff scenery" whilst maintaining "a strong community feeling".

The magazine describes the coastline as "an undiscovered gem with pretty coastal villages, excellent beaches and outstanding cliff scenery.  The area is attractive to walkers, cyclists, wildlife watchers and surfers.  It also offers whale and dolphin watching."
