Moray and Aberdeenshire Self Catering Holidays
The Moray Speyside area stretches along the coast from the sprawling expanse of the Culbin Forest to the pretty town of Cullen, and rolls south into the rugged Cairngorms National Park. Known for its Malt Whisky Trail, spectacular coastline and large expanses of hill and forest, the Moray area is rich in varied landscapes that create an idyllic backdrop to any holiday.
The historic town of Forres (referenced in Shakespeare’s ‘Macbeth’) is the first main town as you arrive in Moray from Inverness, and is ideally situated for exploring everything from distilleries and golf courses to breath-taking beaches and peaceful woodland.
Nearby Elgin has fascinating historic sites to explore from magnificent cathedral remains to local castles. Its central location in Moray means that it is an ideal base in the area, and a short drive to a range of local highlights.
The pretty towns of Fochabers and Keith are close to the path of the River Spey and within easy reach of Spey Bay, and Speyside’s whisky distilleries and rugged hills.
The coastline that clings to the Moray Firth between Findhorn and Pennan is a treasure-trove of secluded sandy beaches, rugged cliffs and quaint fishing villages. Discover the cluster of coastal gems on the Moray Coast Trail: the peaceful bay and whitewashed cottages in Findhorn; the gorgeous arch of beach from Findhorn to Burghead; the cliff-top views and picturesque harbour at Hopeman; two very different beaches in Lossiemouth; wildlife watching at Spey Bay; the seaside sights at Buckie; the beautiful Bow Fiddle Rock at Portknockie; and the lovely sandy beach at Cullen, tucked beneath its viaduct.
The Aberdeenshire coast from Cullen to Pennan is home to a number of picturesque harbour villages, including Portsoy, Banff, Gardenstown, Crovie and Pennan. With beautiful beaches to explore, fantastic wildlife watching on offer and walks galore, the Aberdeenshire coast is a scenic holiday spot where you can truly get away from it all.
Whether you’re keen to discover the area’s history, walk its hills and woodland, experience its beaches and golf courses, or fish its winding rivers, Moray is an incredibly scenic holiday destination with all the space you need to relax and unwind.
