Get into the Scottish spirit and head to Loch na Bo, 7 miles from home, for a spot of fishing. Try your hand at catching wild brown trout at this stunning 40-acre loch where you can hire rods and boats. Open seasonally between April and September, make sure you don't miss out!
For a dose of history, retail therapy and a whisky or two, travel 10 miles to nearby Elgin - home to the ruins of a spectacularly beautiful cathedral which are full of character and tales of years gone by. Discover the Pictish cross slab and cracked gravestone amongst other exciting remains. Continue your tour by visiting the museum which is one of the oldest in Britain and can be found at the top of the high street. Famed for its whisky, you must embark on a tour of one of the local distilleries and enjoy a glass or two.
Follow the River Spey for 5.5 miles and reach the largest shingle beach in Scotland, Spey Bay. A wonderful coastal reserve, spend the day here admiring the wildflowers and butterflies, dolphins and dipping your toe in the ocean. The National Cycle Network passes close by so you can hop on your bike and explore the local area with ease if you prefer two wheels to walking.
