The county of Moray lies in the North East of Scotland on the coast of the Moray Firth.

Moray is not widely known as it lies off the usual beaten tourist path between the Highlands and the Grampian Mountains but it has a lot to offer holiday makers with miles of sandy coast on the Moray Firth where you can watch the bottle nosed dolphins from the shore.

Fishing is perfect here with river or sea fishing available and if you fancy the odd eighteen holes then you can choose from sixteen courses. This is Macbeth country and its history lies in the stones of the many castles, cairns and majestic beauty. It is also known for the only Malt Whisky Trail in the world!

From here you can explore Loch Ness and Inverness or head further into the Highlands.

Attractions to see in this area include:

  • Aberlour Distillery
  • Auchindoun Castle
