Spey Bay is a beautiful coastal reserve with the largest shingle beach in Scotland. Constant changes caused by the river create a succession of habitats, from bare shingle to coastal grasslands, brackish saltmarsh and wet woodland.
In summer, breeding terns fill the skies and bottlenose dolphins are regularly spotted at the mouth of the estuary.
There is an enjoyable 2.5-mile circular walk which leads along the coast and back through the woodland and grassland.
Spey Bay lies 8 miles north east of Elgin, at the end of the B9015 (Kingston) or the B9014 (Tugnet).
Access can be gained from the car parks at Tugnet or Kingston.
The track is unsurfaced but the walk is relatively flat.
