Elgin has been Moray's main centre for over 800 years. Today there is a new leisure centre and many fine shops, whilst nearby are Johnston's Cashmere Visitor Centre, the Motor Museum and Baxter's of Fochabers.

The Whisky Trail is on Elgin's doorstep, and the delightful sandy beaches of Moray with offshore dolphins and seals are only six miles away. There are many championship golf courses, castles, gardens and antique shops nearby.

Elgin is a stones throw from Speyside and the new Cairngorm National Park with it's popular ski-ing, hill walking and fishing. Elgin has much to offer visitors, being within a one hour drive of such diverse and popular locations such as Loch Ness, Aviemore and Nairn.

Ballindalloch Castle:
Ballindalloch is one of the most beautiful and renowned castles in Scotland located in the heart of Speyside, near to the famed whisky distilleries of Glenfiddich. Brodie Castle Set in peaceful parkland, this fine 16th-century tower house is packed with enough art and antiques to keep connoisseurs happy all day.

Cawdor Castle
A superb fairy-tale Castle filled with Scottish history that you can touch and see and sense for yourself. Cawdor Castle is not another cold monument, but a splendid house and the home of the Cawdor family to this day. Elgin Cathedral Effectively redundant from the time of the Reformation in 1560, this magnificent sandstone monument was little used during the next 100 years and was virtually abandoned thereafter.

Fort George Conceived after the 1745 uprising and the defeat of Bonnie Prince Charlie at nearby Culloden that concluded it, Fort George was intended to be a once and for all solution to the threat posed by the Highlands, and the Jacobites in particular.

Huntly Castle:
Huntly Castle, as it stands now, took several hundred years to build. The first structures were built around 1240 by Earl Duncan. It's name was originally "The Peel of Strathbogie" due to its location along major routes.

Johnstons Cashmere Visitor Centre and Shop has been independently run since 1797, Johnstons has been making beautiful knitwear, clothing and accessories from the most luxurious wools known to man for over two centuries.

Loch Ness Jacobite Cruise:
Whichever season you choose to visit, a cruise on Loch Ness is a superb way to experience the magnificence of the loch and its stunning attractions, such as the ancient ruins of Urquhart Castle.

Spirit of Speyside Festival:
The Spirit of Speyside Whisky Festival is an established event on the whisky lover's calender! It features around four hundred events over the ten days, ranging from a formal Opening Gala, exclusive whisky dinners, to in depth tours of distilleries not normally open to the public.

Moray Firth Dolphins:
The Moray Firth contains a resident population of Bottlenose dolphins in excess of 140 animals, making it the largest such population in the North Sea.
These animals are much larger than individuals of the same species in warmer waters elsewhere in the world.

Spynie Palace:
For five centuries, Spynie Palace was the residence of the Bishops of Moray, standing on the edge of Spynie Loch, a sea loch providing direct access and a safe anchorage.

Moray Firth Boat Charters:
Skippered boat charters for up to 5 people, whether you want to go in search of the dolphins, bird watch or try some sea fishing.

The Malt Whisky Trail Speyside is home to more than half of Scotland's working distilleries and boasts the world's only malt whisky trail. Start off at Elgin's own Glen Moray distillery, then wind your way through some of the Highlands' most spectacular scenery and attractive villages and towns as you visit any or all of the distilleries along the way.

Golf Clubs in Moray This is the Region where green fees are among the most affordable in the land and where there is not only world class golf by the seaside but splendid inland and parkland challenges to perfectly complement them. Elgin and the Moray Golf club in Lossiemouth spring easily to mind.
