Get your hiking shoes on because today we are going somewhere SPECTACULAR! I am taking you to see Cove Bay along the Scottish coast in Moray.
Cove Bay (also sometimes referred to as Primrose Bay) is located about 3.5 miles northwest of Duffus Castle and about a mile and a half east of Hopeman Beach. If you Google it, you want the Cove Bay that says ‘Hopeman/Elgin,’ not the one that is near Aberdeen – although I’m sure that is lovely too. This beautiful stretch of paradise lies along the Moray Firth, at about the point where the river begins to meet the North Sea.
Cove Bay is accessible via a coastal path from Hopeman; however, because Mr. C and I don’t do anything the easy way, we instead clambered down the cliffside to reach the beach. I’m not gonna lie, the climb down was a little precarious, as some of the natural, earthen ‘steps’ are quite steep. Well, tricky for some of us, I should say. Not for Mr. C. He’s some kind of gazelle, I think! But thorny gorse bushes and slippery sand aside, it was worth every single careful step I had to take. Cove Bay is one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen. I absolutely didn’t want to leave.
I’m going to keep it short and leave you now with a few more photos of this gorgeous place. I hope you enjoy them. Have a lovely weekend, friends.

Wow! These are simply gorgeous! Wish I was there!
Me too! I can’t wait to revisit.
Those are some beautiful photographs. Nice post. There’s also a Cove Harbour in Berwickshire, incidentally.
Thanks, Kev! 🙂
Thank you. One of those places that pretty much photographs itself!
Truly, a gorgeous spot, Wendy! I love the rounded stones… clearly, they’ve been tumbling for milennia.
I love the stones too, Eliza. I may or may not have brought a couple home. 😀
😉 I’d be tempted to pick up a souvenir as well!
Your photos from Scotland look absolutely amazing, we used to live in Edinburgh for a few years and I cherish every opportunity I get to go back to this beautiful country. Thanks for sharing and inspiring 😀
Thank you. That is so kind. 🙂 How fortunate you were to have lived in such a wonderful city. It’s overwhelming with its beauty and rich history, isn’t it? I would move to Scotland tomorrow if I could. 🙂
