A seaport and resort in the Moray parish of Kinloss, situated on the east side of Findhorn Bay at the mouth of the River Findhorn. The third village of the same name, the original settlement to the west was destroyed by the drifting of the Culbin Sands, its successor being inundated by the sea in 1701. Once the principal port of Moray, its importance declined after the arrival of the railway in 1860. Thereafter the village developed as a holiday resort with marine leisure facilities. The community-based Findhorn Foundation, which was established here in 1962 by Eileen and Peter Caddy and Dorothy Maclean, erected the Universal Hall Arts and Conference Centre in Findhorn Park in 1974.
