Bow Fiddle Rock

Natural arch that resembles the bow of a fiddle

Bow Fiddle Rock is one of the Moray Coast’s most outstanding natural features. A superb natural arch that has taken on an iconic shape, turning a small island into one of the most photographed spots in Moray.

Resembling a bow poised above a fiddle, the rock formation appears to be two separate parts, and with the sea lashing against the rocks, eddying in and out of the small bay, you could almost hear the tunes being played.

This sight is easily accessed and partially visible from the road. From the village of Portknockie, follow the coast road until it runs out, there are parking spaces on the roadside. From here you can stroll a few steps to the viewpoint, where there is a bench looking out over the cove.

Or for the more adventurous, there is a well-worn path that leads down to the pebble beach. Well-worn is the operative word, it is at least a foot deep in some places and you’ll need to watch your footing as you descend. It’s not a long way down and you’ll be rewarded with the view of the arch towering above you, and if the tide is out you can get even closer.

Top tip: take your camera!
