Things to do in Moray beginning with C – a Blervie House Guide

Military Road in the Cairngorms National Park

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.

If you need information on Cycling or indeed anything else send an email to info@blervie.com and
