Elgin Cathedral, Lossiemouth

Elgin Cathedral, Lossiemouth

Residing in the northern part of Scotland, in Moray District, exists what is now the ruins of what was a once great and old structure. Lossiemouth can claim this great structure as its own. The Elgin Cathedral, which is referred to in many texts as the “Lantern of the North”, is an early place for the emerging and strengthening presence of churches and cathedrals dedicated to the Holy Trinity.

In that century the seats of Papal authority existed in surrounding areas both close and far away from Elgin itself. The position and residence of that seat was held by Bishop Bricius. For his own personal reasons and possibly for a greater cause, the petition was a success in 1224 when it was finalized. The original cathedral remained in its prior position in Spynie until the successor to Bricius who was in power when the cathedrals institution in Elgin was confirmed. Read the full story

Moray District-Lossiemouth’s Home

Moray District-Lossiemouth’s Home

The main town in the district known as Moray, is Elgin. Being the main town and center of much of the activity, it lies five miles south of Lossiemouth, which used to be the primary port area serving the Moray Elgin residents. The heart of the whisky production in Scotland is housed here, and it is a simple jaunt to start here and explore much of the coastal areas as well.

The city of Elgin is the bustling center of the area with many stylish shops and a highly pedestrian-oriented transportation base. In fact, it is rather high in the frequency of variety and specific shops compared to surrounding areas and communities. High Street has many 19th century buildings towering over the main walkway and is a sight of magnificent viewing to those who tour here or reside there. Read the full story

Lossiemouth’s Origins in Kinneddar

Lossiemouth’s Origins in Kinneddar

Lossiemouth’s origins have been derived from five separate and distinct communities that were in the immediate area. These communities were Lossiemouth, Branderburgh, Seatown, and the ancient towns of Kinneddar and Stotfield. The roots deep into the past has helped to give Lossiemouth its character.

Existing in what some would call a shambles currently, the original nature of the lands comprising the town of Kinneddar have disappeared since their original formation. In the past, when the settlements were first formed in the area, they were called “Ferm Touns”. Essentially a collective of settlements and domiciles in a group to denote structure. The original placement of those facilities are now long gone. In current existence are evidence of a Pictish settlement having been in the area, as well as many large carved stone pieces. Dating these has placed the lands of Kinneddar to approximately the 8th or 9th century. Most likely a Christian continuance of the original faith, due to there having been many crosses found in the area as well. Read the full story
