Lossiemouth Used To Be Called Inverlossie
DID YOU KNOW?
Lossiemouth (Scottish Gaelic: lossymoof ) wasnt always called Lossiemouth, hundreds of years ago in 1950 it was called Inverlossie, Inver meaning mouth of the river and Lossie meaning stinks of dung. But when the RAF decided to make a base there the BBC used the englishified ‘Lossiemouth‘ in their newscasts so as not to confuse folk in Tunbridge Wells etc . Folk who bide there try to call it the ‘Jewel of Moray’ but naebody takes them on.
