Locals in a Moray town have been urged to appreciate the detailed heritage of their coastal haven before it is lost forever.
The Lossiemouth Heritage Association (LHA) is a charitable organisation dedicated to preserving and highlighting the history of the town.
They have undertaken a number of projects in order to do this, including looking after St James Square, where they installed floral attractions and an old anchor to symbolise the fishing background of Lossie.
Now, the group is looking for new projects to take on and want to know of any local buildings, items or areas of historical importance that they can help with.
Chairwoman of the LHA, Iona Kielhorn, wants more people to appreciate the little-known history of the town.
She said: “There is so much history in Lossiemouth but people seem to have forgotten about much of it – and at times it can feel like nobody cares.
“Look at Kinneddar Castle. It was a cathedral before Spynie or Elgin and buried in the cemetery there are the only remains of an ancient pictish church in the world.
“It is not made of stone but of woven weeds and dates from the 10th century. It is fascinating.
“We are an amateur group interesting in highlighting the heritage and appreciate the medieval history of Lossiemouth.”
Ms Kielhorn is the granddaughter of one of the town’s most famous sons, Ramsey MacDonald, the first UK Labour Prime Minister.
The LHA were also involved in refurbishing the Lossiemouth Mercat Cross and held a St Gerardine’s Lantern Walk to commemorate the life and work of the patron saint of the town.
The East Quarry in the town is a site of scientific interest due to its link to prehistoric fossils and in particular its links to late Triassic period reptiles.
One project the LHA is currently interested in pursuing is the reproduction of a book detailing the history of Lossiemouth.
Ms Kielhorn said: “There was a book written about the history of Lossiemouth about 50 years ago by Agnes Keith and we want to reproduce that.
“However, we can’t find her family and we need their permission to reprint it.”
