A is for Things To Do when staying at Blervie House. Blogging is not my something I have done before, mainly because there is always something else I would rather be doing, normally something that involves being outside in this wonderful part of Scotland. However, something I am always keen to do is share my love of Moray with our guests and help them spend their time wisely doing the right activity, seeing the right site or even just relaxing.
There are few areas of Scotland that offer such a wide and interesting range of attractions and historical interest as Moray and the North Eastern coast of Scotland. So, for this reason, I am inside on a beautiful sunny Autumnal afternoon sharing an A to Z guide I have written of amazing activities you can consider when staying at Blervie.
So starting with A is for Things To Do
A for Adventure
Adventure – well, in this case, you have to start with Ace Adventures Located just a short drive from Blervie you can have a superb real adventure on the River Findhorn. Ace will help you tailor your adventure to your level. They have the best year round white-water rafting in the UK – with up to Grade 5 rapids in the right high water conditions. Try it to see if you like it, the scenery is amazing.
You are in safe hands; the River Findhorn Gorge is incredibly beautiful and your sense of achievement at the end will never be forgotten even if this is a one-off adventure for you. If you would like something quieter try Rafting or Kayaking in the quieter waters of the Findhorn. The whole experience comes with Qualified Guides and Professional Photos.
And for those guests really determined to get wet there is always River Tubing, Cliff Jumping or Canyoning. Moray is a great place to be outdoors and the River Findhorn is a great place to start. If this adventure is not to your liking watch this space, there are more coming.
If you have non participating spectators travelling with you make sure they are on the Riverbank to watch you go through the spectacular Randolph’s Leap. There is a fabulous walk from the car park at Logie Steading Walk along that part of the River is quite an adventure in itself. And don’t forget to drop into Logie Steading for a tranquil afternoon tea after all your excitement.
A for Auroras
Auroras or Northern Lights – some people travel miles to see these amazing light shows caused by collisions between electrically charged particles released from the sun that enter the earth’s atmosphere and collide with gases such as oxygen and nitrogen resulting in a light show provided by Nature far worthier than any firework display.
Here in Moray where Dolphins meet star-studded skies is one of the best places to see this phenomenon. Due to our clear, dark skies and wide-open northern horizons, the light shows can be amazing. If you are really lucky you can see the show over the Moray Firth from the house, on the terrace, camera at the ready.
One of the best places to see these lights can be Roseisle Beach but we are so lucky in this area with vast expanses of beaches and skies we might well be the place to save you travelling miles.
I hope my first A suggestions have tempted you to think about Moray as a different destination, look out for the next instalment or let me know what your favourite adventure is.
