The Moray Coast is one of the most beautiful parts of Scotland offering you many miles of coastal scenery, sandy beaches and wildlife.
With Moray having such a stunning coastline it makes for an excellent walking route. The Moray Coastal Trail beginning at Cullen and ending in Forres gives you a walking or cycling route stretching along the Moray Coast for 72km. Bowfiddle rock can be seen on a short coastal walk with the sighting of dolphins, minke whales and many seabirds very common. Why not jump aboard the Gemini Explorer for a dolphin and marine tour of the Moray Firth Coast and watch the dolphins show off around the boat while you take in the beautiful views all around. Further along the coast you can try out canoeing, surfing, body boarding, and white water rafting at a local award-winning activity centre.
Hire a bike and follow one of the many well signposted cycling routes or challenge yourself to the monster trails set up in the local woods. If golf is your sport, Moray has the choice of fifteen courses with Strathlene, Buckpool and Cullen's links course all within a fifteen minutes' drive.
There are a variety of tourist attractions to capture your attention in the fishing villages and towns - MacDuff Marine Aquarium, Tugnet Icehouse, Baxters Highland Village visitor centre and many more. Take a step back in time and enjoy an eleven mile train journey along the 'Keith and Dufftown Railway' (The Whisky Line) or follow the world-famous Malt Whisky Trail including Speyside Cooperage and experience the skill of coopering.
