New Findhorn Association Park Ecovillage Moray Scotland

The Community Website for The Park Ecovillage, Findhorn

Visit Us

The Park Ecovillage sits alongside the lovely historical fishing village of Findhorn. Located on the coast of north east of Scotland, it nestles between the natural beauty of Findhorn Bay and the spacious dunes and beautiful beaches of the North Sea coastline which stretch for miles. This area is renowned for its nature reserves and its special sunny and dry micro-climate.

Within The Park Ecovillage we have beautiful gardens, Sanctuaries, the Universal Hall, Moray Arts Centre, Phoenix cafe and community stores and more.

We welcome visitors to The Park Ecovillage!  There are many ways of visiting the community, such as staying at a bed and breakfast on The Park, staying at the caravan site, wild camping in the Hinterland (contact landmanager@findhornhinterland.org), attending an event or course, or just coming for the day!

The New Findhorn Association is here to support with information and you can call at the NFA General Office (details at the bottom of this page) or email the Visitor Centre.

The Visitor Centre is based near the entrance of the Park in a little, historical white building. Please pop in if you visit, we are happy to answer any of your questions. You are always welcome to visit and explore the Park.
