There are some beautiful buildings such as Thunderton House previously a Royal Palace that played host to Bonnie Prince Charlie in 1746. Do take the time to visit the Cathedral and either Glen Moray Distillery or Johnstons of Elgin or both.

Extinct – if you are looking for a breath of fresh air with history and views find the Elginia Trail in Quarrelwoods previously roamed by reptiles older than dinosaurs.

This 2.5-mile walk is through attractive woodland with information points about previous residents and the landscape.
