Moray is becoming a priority destination for walkers, cyclists, whisky drinkers, nature lovers, photographers, or those just wanting to get away from it all. It’s coastline is regarded as one of the best in the world with almost-deserted sandy beaches that stretch for miles, and cliffs punctuated with wildlife havens and caves. The fishing ports have given way to yachting communities and food produced on the land and from the sea is the best you could expect anywhere in the world.

Speyside is known the world over as being at the heart of malt whisky country. With more distilleries per square mile than anywhere else in the country, or even the world, it’s an ideal place to learn more about the spirit as a beginner, or delve deeper into the history and processes of making it.

Three gravel paths form a giant triangle known as the Moray Way, a 95-mile route that takes in three shorter tracks, the Speyside Way, the Moray Coast Trail and the Dava Way, all join to encompass some of the best things Moray has to see and do.
