Speyside

Renowned the world over for its sought after Speyside whisky, breaks to Speyside offer a plethora of other activities to give you a break from the golden spirit. Spend some time in the Medieval city of Elgin and explore the majestic ruins of its once grand cathedral, before discovering the secrets of the local cashmere wool industry at Johnstons of Elgin. Families will love the fairytale architecture of Ballindalloch Castle and afterwards you can join a tour of the Moray Firth to look for elusive dolphins and seals. Of course no visit is complete without seeing some Scotch whisky production and with 50 distilleries in this region alone, a break to Speyside provides plenty of chances to indulge.
