F for Festival, Findhorn, Forts and more

Findhorn-beach

Festivals I have already mentioned our Spirit of Speyside Festival in my May for Moray Blog. If whisky is not your first love then we can still find a Festival for you.

In June we have the Moray Outdoor Walking Festival. I love this Festival, if you have not already guessed I am a real outdoors girl and Moray is the place to be outdoors. This midsummer Festival is the ideal way to explore Moray from the foothills of the Cairngorms to our award-winning Coastline. The Festival is 10 days of events with a choice every day, it is easy to make the Festival a short break or include it as part of your holiday. All levels are catered for and it is not just walking – you have cycling, historical talks, canoeing. The hardest part is deciding which activity you would like to include.

3 pairs of walking boots

And continuing with the theme of Moray’s excellent knowledge of Distilled Spirits there will be Distilled 2019 taking place in Elgin in September. This is a two-day immersion into local Distilled spirits and is your chance to meet the producers and taste the products.

And last but not least is Nairn Book and Arts Festival in September. Visiting authors with superb talks, exciting musical events in the evening and all on our doorstep. I am definitely watching the soon to be published programme for this Festival.


Findhorn | Find at least one walk you enjoy along this spectacular River – ask me where

Fishing | Test your skills on the Findhorn, the Spey or there are five other major rivers only a short drive away. Don’t forget this is  Scotland – home of Salmon Fishing.

Forts | Fort George, a spectacular 300-year-old Fort, home of the Highland Regiments, situated on the Moray Firth so stand on the ramparts and look out for dolphins.
