The Greco-Roman astronomer and geographer, Claudius Ptolemaeus, generally known as Ptolemy (c. 168), describes in chapter 2 of his Geographa entitled Albion Island of Britannia the mouth of the River Lossie as ostium Loxa Fluvius. St Gervadius, a Celtic hermit inhabited a cave overlooking the entrance to the sea loch, Loch Spynie.

In his time, the River Lossie entered the loch further to the south, near Inchbroom.

Next was the Seatown – a small area between the river and the canal inholding of 52 houses, 51 of which are the historic fisher cottages.

Following the decision to build a new harbour on the River Lossie, the 18th-century planned town of Lossiemouth, built on a grid system, was established on the low ground below the Coulard Hill.

Kinneddar has now disappeared as a ferm toun, however an old farmhouse still retains its name and is probably its location.

A Pictish settlement occupied the area and large numbers of carved stones, now held in Elgin Museum, were found.

In 1308, Robert the Bruce, taking advantage of King Edward II's preoccupation with matters in England and France, started capturing and usually destroying castles that were either English garrisoned or controlled throughout Scotland.

Joined by an army provided by David de Moravia, the Bishop of Moray, Bruce burned the castles of Inverness and Nairn before seizing and burning Kinneddar castle.

Kinneddar village was still sizable in the early 19th century but dwindled away with the building of the new Lossiemouth, just to the east.

The early maps, some dating back to the early 16th century, clearly show Stotfield (some maps, name the settlement as Stotfold or Stodfauld).

Early documented references to the settlement refer to it as Kenedor dating it to the 10th century; it may, of course, have been a continuation of the original Pictish religious community.

Saint Gervadius (Gerardine) is referred to as "Gervadius of Kenedor" and may have been part of this community, establishing his cell in the cave just to the northeast.

Although the Romans never conquered the peoples of the North of Scotland, they made several journeys to the Moray Firth coast.
