The coast provides lots of inspiration for your nature writing. This route involves a gentle stroll and nature writing workshop along Burghead’s beautiful coastline.

The natural world is an endless source of inspiration for wildlife writer and photographer Rebecca Gibson. Join her as she walks part of the Moray Coast Trail from Burghead to Cummingston and back.

This three-hour event will involve a leisurely stroll along the coast path, keeping an eye out for any passing wildlife both in the fields and out at sea. You will be encouraged to notice not just the sights but also the sounds, textures and smells of your surroundings. Nature writing is most immersive when it involves all the senses.

During the walk there will be a nature writing workshop, using crashing waves, chittering stonechats and prickly gorse as sensory prompts. You will have the chance to read out what you’ve written if you’d like to, but there’s absolutely no pressure to share. Afterwards, we will make our way back along the coast path to the car park, hopefully feeling refreshed and inspired.

Well-behaved dogs are welcome but should not distract participants from the writing workshop or interfere with any wildlife.

The backshore can be hilly so there may be some short inclines, but there is no difficult terrain on the route and the main paths are either tarmac or flat earth/sand.

The event will finish at the start point.

To access the starting point, drive all the way down Grant Street until you reach a sign for Burghead Visitor Centre. Turn right onto Bath Street and continue down to the shore. Turn left onto a gravel track and drive to the end, where you’ll see a round parking area.

Please note: There is now a maximum height barrier before you reach this parking location. If your vehicle is taller than 2.1m, you can park by Burghead Visitor Centre on the headland instead. Rather than turning right onto Bath Street, continue straight past the sign and towards the houses at the end. On the right, you will see several parking bays. Walk back to Bath Street and head down to the starting point, passing beneath the height barrier to the end.
