LOSSIEMOUTH, which is com
of the districts of B ran der burgh, Lossie-
mouth, Seatown and Stotfield. and War-
created a burgh in 1890 under the Lindsay
Act, is in the parish of Drainie, 5 miler
north from Elgin, situated on the banks 01
the Lossie. at its influx into the Mora)
Firth, in the Morayshire poor combination
and the small debt court district of Elgin;
it has a station on the Great North of Scot-
land railway(Elgin and Lossiemouth branch),
and is the seaport for Elgin, and a resort
for sea-bathers. Many residents in Elgin
and elsewhere have erected houses here
which they occupy during the summer
months. The harbour was opened in 1830,
and has since been improved, at a cost of
£20,000, so as to render it a safe and com-
modious haven for shipping. In 1891 a
grant of £20,000 was obtained from the
Government for deepening the harbour to
admit vessels of larger tonnage. The
improvement of the uarbour, and the
facilities of railway communication which
this place has now enjoyed for eevera'.
years, have given a stimulus to trade which
has rendered it one of the most important
seaports north- of Aberdeen. The Estab-
lished church of St. Geradine is a fine
building with a square tower : there is
also a United Free church, erected, at a
cost of £2,400, in place of one destroyeo
by fire; it is in the Early English style :
with an octagonal tower and spire, which
serve as a landmark to mariners. The
Town Hall, erected at a cost of about
£1,100, was opened 2 Feb. 1885, by Sir
George Macpherson Grant, of Ballindal
loch, and Mrs. Dunbar -Brander, of Pit'
gaveny ; a Public Library is now (1903)
in course of erection.
