G is for Gin and Golf. Things to do in Moray

Bottle of Gordon Castle Gin


Gin | Scotland is well and truly on the map for Gin Distilleries as well as whisky. With the local expertise on production and blending it is not surprising that this small area of Scotland is producing some world class Gins.

Here are a few of my favourites, Gordon Castle from the Castle of the same name at Fochabers. El Gin from our local town and Avva from the same town but made in the only Scottish produced still and even closer to home Red Door produced by Benromach part of Gordon & MacPhail with over 120 years of creating spirits. Just let me know if you would like to try some I am happy to taste with you!


Golf  | Scotland is the home of Golf and delivers a host of world-class golf courses. Within a short drive of Blervie House we have a number of exceptional courses. Moray itself offers miles of rugged coastline delivering some wonderful links courses, including two designed by old Tom Morris.

Also nearby you will find the links course at Nairn Golf Club (ranked number 11 in the Top 100 Scotland Golf Courses), the excellent Open Courses of both Castle Stuart and Royal Dornoch. Closer to home we have our own Forres Golf Club delivering a parkland course with dramatic mountain scenery. With so many hidden gems and and  combined with our mild climate and long sunshine hours you are assured of some truly excellent golf.
