Four miles east is the Cathedral City of Elgin with a good selection of shops, Cafe’s, attractions, Johnston’s Cashmere Visitor Centre, a smashing Cinema and of course the Moray Leisure Centre with its pool complex and ice rink.
Forres seven miles west is an attractive town with award winning parks, and floral displays centered around a high street that still holds ‘olde world charm’ and filled with interesting local shops and free parking!
From the attractive village of Findhorn, a favourite of watersports enthusiasts and home of the internationally famous Findhorn Foundation to the sands of Lossiemouth the local coastline offers a wealth of unspoiled terrain and nature.
Inverness, the capital of the Highlands, with all a thriving city has to offer is just over thirty miles from the doorstep and offers far more than we can list here.
Royal Deeside, Strathspey, the Isle of Skye and even John o’ Groats can be visited on a single day trip. Whilst closer to your holiday home, there are many walks and trails to discover, dolphins and porpoises in the nearby Moray Firth, ospreys and otters and of course, wild deer wandering through the nearby fields and woodlands.
In these pages we have tried to provide you with a taste of a few of the delights on offer almost on the doorstep as well as links and contact to other sites that will provide you with more specialised information.
