A heavenly combination of whisky and water awaits you in whisky country, encapsulating the true spirit of Scotland. A unique trail of world famous malts, distinctive distilleries and a unique cooperage weaves among the woods and glens of the Spey Valley.
Moray is truly malt whisky country but that’s not all Moray is famous for. Baxters of Speyside, Walkers Shortbread and Johnstons of Elgin Cashmere are just a few of the world-renowned names found here. Other attractions in the area include castles at Brodie and Ballindalloch, Elgin's magnificent Cathedral, known as 'the Lantern of the North and glorious gardens. Walk the Speyside Way, from the coast, with its beautiful beaches and fishing villages, through the fertile plains of the Laich of Moray, following the River Spey to the dramatic Grampian Highlands.
The Speyside Way footpath passes through Spey Bay, the location of the Tugnet Ice House and the Moray Firth Wildlife Centre. The Moray Firth is one of only two places in Britain where there is a resident population of bottle-nosed dolphins and the keen eyed visitor can see schools at play or take boat trips from harbours. Play a round or two of golf on some of Moray’s championship golf courses, breathe in the aroma of malt whisky from the highest tee in Scotland at Dufftown, or relish in the engaging tests at Moray Old.
Take part in the many festivals and events held in Moray from the Spirit of Speyside Whisky Festival, a celebr ation of our national drink, to the Burning of the Clavie held in Burghead.
