Moray Holiday Guide

Considered to have one of the most beautiful coastlines in the world, the county of Moray Speyside has a varied and stunning landscape, sitting where the Highlands meet the low. The outlying towns and villages have Neolithic roots, with a history dating as far back as 7,000 BC. If you’re considering a trip to Scotland, Moray county should be high on your wishlist of places to see.

Moray Speyside and Scotland’s Past

Discover Scotland’s past by visiting the wee village of Burghead, where a Pictish fort stands as a testament to times gone by. Or, explore the town of Elgin, a lively community that sits between the cities of Inverness and Aberdeen. Made famous due to the spectacular 13th century cathedral that sits in the heart of this town, Elgin has long had visitors crossing the nave and the ruins to see the unusual and unique elements of its cathedral. Don't miss the Pictish cross that lies within the body of this building.

Find Hotels Near the Popular Whiskey Trail

Within easy reach of Elgin you will discover the Glen Moray and Gordon & MacPhail distilleries, where even novices to whisky tasting will find distinct and malty flavours worth learning about. Take a trip on the Whiskey Trail in Moray Speyside, a region famous for its whisky, so you can savour the different tastes and bodies these distilleries brew.

Stay in Seaside Lossiemouth

Outside of Elgin and the Whiskey Trail, and closer to the beautiful shoreline, is the town of Lossiemouth, where water babies and golf enthusiasts can find something to please them. Tee off at the links courses of Moray Golf Club, or take loved ones down to the long stretch of sand that banks up against the town. Wiggle some toes in the sand, play in the sea, and keep your eyes peeled for dolphins and seals along the way.

Outdoor Attractions in Moray

Whether in the air or in the sea, Moray is teeming with life. Dolphins famously frolic along the Moray Coastal Trail, which is one of the most famous coastal routes in the UK. Rugged outcrops and cliffs punctuate and shelter sandy bays, huge rock formations spike up out of the sea, and in between these natural wonders, fishing villages and quaint Scottish towns perch on the banks overlooking the water. Walk, cycle or horse ride to your heart's content in Moray Speyside and enjoy fine views of the region.

Fishing in the River Spey

If you prefer your water with a side of fishing, then travelling down the River Spey and staying in one of the many locations along its banks is your ticket. The River Spey is one of the most productive rivers in Scotland and famous for its salmon. Stay near the Tulchan Estate or near the village of Fochabers to start reeling in those fish.
