Free time options on Monday Afternoon.
In the Park - the tour of the Park on Sunday will give you an idea of the various places within the Park that could be of interest; the weaving studio, the pottery, the Moray Arts Centre, the Phoenix shop and the Universal Hall as well as the various other small spaces and the different styles of buildings that there are. This could be a more concentrated version of the initial tour.
Nearby there are various possibilities:
Findhorn village - walk here, visit the Kimberley Inn, explore the village and go on to the downs and the beach. Come back to the Park through the downs and visit the labyrinth of stones. At the Marina take a water taxi across to the other side of the Findhorn river or a trip to look for dolphins - this is run by North58 and needs to be booked in advance www.north58.co.uk/findhorn.html
In the direction of Forres:
Opposite the Park is the local nature reserve. It will be high tide at about 3 p.m. This a good place for bird watching.
Walking down towards Kinloss (on the way towards Forres) it is possible to go into the nature reserve at various points.
At Kinloss there is a ruined Cistercian monastary.
In the town of Forres there are several things that can be seen.
The Benromach distillery. You will have been asked if you would like a tour as a group. Tours leave every half an hour and there may be space for anyone who just turns up. This is close to the rail station.
Nelsons Tower provides a wonderful view out over the Moray Firth and Findhorn in the distance.
There is also an ancient Pictish Stone
In general Forres is a beautiful and historic Scottish town and contains other mysteries such as the National Unicorn Museum!
The bus runs into Forres from outside the Park.
It is possible to hire bicycles from the Caravan Park making it possible to travel further afield.
Walking is also an option and the best option for Findhorn village.
We will try to provide other ideas and information at the start of the congress.
