This isn’t the middle of nowhere!
There’s plenty to keep you occupied in and around Forres and it also makes an ideal base and starting point from which to explore further afield.
Moray is less than 40 miles from east to west. Inverness is just 25 miles away and even a drive to The Lecht ski centre through the Cairngorms National Park is just a touch over 40 miles, making the whole county less than an hour away, and there’s even more beyond that.

Just look at our map, we’re right in the middle of the whole north and north-east – within easy reach of the entire county of Moray, much of the Highlands and Aberdeenshire, including hotspots such as Speyside, NC500, NE250, Cairngorms and the Snow Roads Scenic Route.
But of course, you’re unlikely to be rushing and there’s lots of reasons to stop along the way.
We don’t believe in setting rigid itineraries – we wouldn’t know what to leave out! So instead, we provide a snapshot of what’s within reach and encourage you to make your own way, pick and choose from the many things to see and do, and enjoy your freedom.
