Hopeman is a scenic coastal village situated on the shores of the Moray Firth in the Northeast of Scotland. This small village attracts many visitors due to the fact it boasts two sandy beaches, East Beach and West Beach, as well as an idyllic harbour used mainly now for leisure crafts. The East Beach boasts a line of beach huts, all individually decorated, along with a small pavilion. The main street has a number of small shops and a popular tearoom but nowadays the main venue for a big shop is the town of Elgin which has 24-hour Asda and Tesco supermarkets. Elgin sits between Inverness and Aberdeen and is home to the historical Elgin Cathedral. The Moray Firth is home to many dolphins and stretches of stunning coastline with many whisky distilleries, forest walks, cycle paths and little harbours. Outside the village is the popular town of Inverness, where you can find further attractions and amenities such as Infinity Trampoline Park and Inverness Golf Club.
