It is with regret that TFVCC has had to take the decision NOT to permit tents to pitch in the Dunes area around the West and East Beach car parks. This includes the area known as Henry’s Green. TFVCC are trying to balance tourism in support of local business, protect the delicate environment and manage the impact of visitor numbers on the residents of Findhorn. Unfortunately a few irresponsible people have made this very difficult.
This decision has been taken following challenging situations by some ‘wild campers’ who are not following the Scottish Outdoor Code. They have been pitching their tents in view of residences, lighting fires, despite signage requesting no open fires. A number of fires have been fuelled through the vandalism of car park fencing. as well as Irresponsible toilet habits, despite the nearby toilet block being open.
We have seen a very high number of motorhomes using the West Beach car park, we are restricting number of motorhomes staying overnight to 21. We ask motorhome visitors to support us in managing this, if you see it is busy please do as the Scottish Government advice and look for alternative sites. We want everyone to enjoy and be safe in Findhorn please help us to do this.
Alternative motorhome sites in area:
- Findhorn Bay Caravan Park
- Silver Sands, Lossiemouth
- West Beach Caravan Park, Hopeman
- The Old Mill Caravan Park, Forres
- Burghead Beach Caravan Park, Burghead
The West Beach car park has a number of refuse collection bins, PLEASE if they are full please find an alternative bin at the Car Park or take your rubbish home.
This weekend forecast is for a lovely few days, we hope that residents and visitors can all enjoy this beautiful area. Please remember all our local businesses are working hard to ensure you have a safe and enjoyable visit to Findhorn, please help them by following their instructions and observe social distancings.
