Moray Map


The region of Moray, in the North East of Scotland, is famed for its malt whisky, breathtaking beaches like Burghead, Hopeman and Lossiemouth, and coastlines rich in birdlife, like Spey Bay and Culbin Sands. The Moray Firth, the largest firth in Scotland, is home to dolphins, whales and dramatic cliff-faces full of nesting seabirds, with rivers like the Spey and Findhorn providing fantastic salmon and trout-fishing spots. With a famed temperate climate and diverse landscapes, from dramatic glens to scenic coastal trails, this area suits outdoor enthusiasts.

Moray, the birthplace of MacBeth, lies between the capital city of the Highlands, Inverness, and west of Aberdeenshire all the way south to Tomintoul, in the foothills of the Cairngorms National Park. With numerous routes servicing nearby Inverness Airport and ample roads throughout the area, getting around is easy!

Moray’s rich history is evident today by the many ancient Pictish relics still standing. The extravagant grounds of the 16th Century Brodie Castle are a favourite spot for exploring the region’s past.

Scotland is renowned for its natural larder, and Moray is a food lovers dream! The coastal town of Cullen is home to the famous Scottish seafood dish 'Cullen Skink'. Indulge and spend time at the Baxter's Highland Village in Fochabers and enjoy traditional fare in one of the region’s many fine restaurants. Whisky buffs will adore Moray due to the area hosting over half of Scotland's Malt Whisky distilleries. Take part in the popular Malt Whisky Trail; a great way to discover the history of our celebrated Scottish tipple and better still...sample the range!
