“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. ”

“Gordon Castle is a classy affair. Their cafe, set beside their huge and beautifully planted walled garden is a lovely place to come for lunch. The menu is derived from the goods grown in the garden where possible. Beautiful surroundings with a children’s play area and gift shop too (see Gordon Castle natural play area link also in this guide).”

“Findhorn Bay is part of the Findhorn Bay Nature Reserve, a place of beauty and tranquility. Findhorn Beach is a sandy beach, with dunes and pebbles, and dramatic differences between the tides. It is home to a colony of seals, and occasionally dolphins can be seen. An excellent place for short or long walk, even all the way to Burghead.”
