So you are looking for things to do in Moray – well here is some help for you. However as there is so much choice I am going through one letter at a time and in this blog I am just going to be talking about activities beginning with C.
C for Cairngorms National Park
Whatever you do don’t miss the Cairngorms – some of Scotland’s most famous mountains. If you are driving up to Blervie House from Edinburgh then I would suggest you plan your route using the Snow Roads. This route is some of the most spectacular scenery in Scotland with mountains, moorland, Highland Villages and Castles. Take the time to stop and admire the viewpoints – take special notice of beautiful but harsh Glen Shee. Alternatively plan to a day trip just to see the Queen’s Highland Residence Balmoral Castle, and at the same time enjoy Ballater Village, take a walk around Loch Muick or visit at Mar Lodge and appreciate the vastness of the Cairngorms.
C for Castles
So, this is Scotland and of course we have Castles. Please see my Castle Page for more information but very close to us we have a few of my favourites:
Ballindalloch Castle – a stunning family home
Brodie Castle – has a wonderful art collection
Cawdor Castle – a fairy tale castle with unique gardens linked to Shakespeare’s MacBeth
Duffus Castle – the stunning medieval stronghold of the Moray family
C for Clava Cairns
These unique Bronze Age circular tombs and stones are said to be the original inspiration for The Outlander series.
C for Culloden
Talking of Outlander don’t miss Culloden Battlefield and Clava Cairns is right next door. The visitor centre really draws you into the last battle of the Jacobite Rising in 1745 and is very much a part of Scottish history today.
C for Cycling
Road, off-road – take your pick the scenery and the cycling are superb. We can also help you with bike hire recommendations and routes.
