Weather preparations update:
Moray Council teams are delivering a pallet of sandbags each to Stewart Street, Portgordon, and Great Eastern Street, Portessie. These are freely available for residents whose homes are at risk from waves over-topping the harbour. A further visit will be made later this afternoon to ensure sufficient bags are available.
Gritters will be on the road any moment treating all routes other than coastal roads, and will carry out a second treatment in the early evening.
Famous for its colony of dolphins, fabulous beaches and more malt whisky distilleries than any where else in Scotland, Moray is a thriving area and a great place to live. Nestling between Aberdeenshire and the Highlands, Moray stretches from Tomintoul in the south to the shores of the Moray Firth, from Keith in the east to Brodie Castle in the west.
