Moray Speyside

The broad wedge of Moray Speyside fans out from the ski slopes of the Eastern Cairngorms through the whisky distilling heartlands towards the beaches and bustling villages along the Moray Coastal Trail. From the inland cooperages and still makers of Craigellachie and Rothes to the headlands from Burghead to Portgordon, this is a rich region of innovation and industry, creative culture and outdoor pursuits.

Much of life throughout Moray Speyside is focused on the River Spey itself, the clear-flowing base of some of Scotland’s finest malt whiskies, a source of adventure for canoeists and rafters, and home to the fish that attract anglers from all over the world. The river weaving its way through fertile farmland and village after village is the timeless thread that pulls together so many local stories of times gone by.
