Things to Do in Moray Speyside
The contrasting landscape of Moray Speyside presents multiple opportunities for adrenaline junkies and sports enthusiasts. A rugged coastline and mountains provide the perfect backdrop for climbing, mountain biking, rafting, sailing and hiking; whilst the rolling slopes and flatlands lend themselves ideally to gentler activities of walking, golfing and cycling.
Moray’s low rainfall, warm sunshine and mild coastal airs make our golf courses playable all year round. From classic coastal links at Moray and Cullen to courses with grand views of the hills, such as the course at Rothes, Moray Speyside is the perfect holiday destination for golf-loving visitors.

Moray Speyside is also a fabulous place for road cyclists, with a wide range of routes offering something for cyclist of all abilities, from short, circular routes to epic adventures in the remote hills and valleys of Speyside and the Cairngorms.
