Sightseeing
A stunning 15th century castle in a beautiful countryside. The castle has been conserved as a ruin but is well maintained. There is a short walk from a small car park. Auchindoun is a quiet, less known attraction. Entry is free.

The Cathedral and indeed Elgin, was once known as ‘the lantern o’ the north’ ... at least until the Wolf of Badenoch burned it down in 1390. What remains is an extremely well preserved beauty in traditional stone masonry. Do visit. It is gorgeous, interesting and the tour guides are very well informed. It is part of Historic Scotland with paid entry .. well worth the money but you can enjoy it from outside the railings. The Cooper park, the Biblical gardens, Johnston’s Woollen Mill and the Cathedral are all within a few minutes walk.

If you are keen to spend some of your time further afield in the mountains then a guided trip to the reindeers up on the Cairngorms is a joy. You will join a party of walkers and a guide or two with enough lichen and food to entice the reindeer and spend some precious time in their company. Pleasant walk, great views, great animals. For those less able or with less time the Reindeer Centre at Glenmore has an enclosure to see some up close and learn a little more about reindeers and their time in Scotland.

Luxury shopping
High end luxury cashmere products for all ages in beautiful buildings.... Johnston’s also offer a free tour of the factory. I enjoy the industrial, historical and traditional manufacturing environment almost as much as finished product or the leisurely lunch in the coffee shop, restaurant.
