Moray... from the mountains to the sea
Moray is a hidden gem in the North East of Scotland.
The river Spey runs through the heart of Moray and aside from being a famous salmon river, it's also the home of the Speyside Malt Whiskies including Glenfiddich and Glenlivet.
Of course, being Scotland's Malt Whisky capital with its world famous distilleries is not the only reason why you'll have a wonderful time here!!
Truely......... Moray has something to offer everyone!
To the South West of the cottages are the Cairngorm Mountains and the National Park. A vast area of accessible wilderness where you can enjoy unspoilt landscapes and superb wildlife. In the winter this becomes a veritable wonderland with 2 ski centres.
To the South East is Royal Deeside where you can visit the Queens castle at Balmoral and the busy city of Aberdeen which has some excellent shopping and, of course, one of the busiest harbours in Scotland usually full of oil support vessels.
Moray is bounded to the North by the Moray Firth, home of the Moray Firth Bottlenose Dolphins. This coastline has some fabulous beaches which, even in the summer, are almost empty. It's a haven for lovers of long walks, wildlife and sea anglers.
To the West is the "Great Glen", home of Loch Ness with the charming city of Inverness at its head. Here you'll find great shopping and Inverness is also gateway to the North Highlands and the west coast.
There are also many local museums reflecting the local history and rich maritime heritage of the area. Many have free admission!
