Lossie Forest covers a total area of 818ha and extends along the Moray coast between the settlements of Lossiemouth to the West and Kingston to the East. The main access to the forest is off the B9103 leading to Lossiemouth or along the coastal footpath from Lossiemouth or Kingston. The forest is a single block of predominantly coniferous woodland, of plantation origin with Pine (Scots and Corsican), currently being the primary species.

The primary objectives for this block are the continued production of high quality timber and the preservation of the biodiversity and heritage value of the site. The secondary objective for the future management of the woodland is to maintain the quality of the site for recreation.

The production of quality timber will be under low impact silvicultural systems (LISS) which will also enhances the recreational and biodiversity of the environment as Lossie forest is ideally suited to LISS.

The Lossie plan area contains part of two designated areas. Spey Bay SSSI and Lower River Spey / Spey Bay SAC.
