The village of Portknockie is on the coast, just a few miles from the thriving town of Buckie. There are plenty of walks available around the local area, try walking to nearby Findochty or Cullen to sample the local soup, Cullen skink.

For golf enthusiasts, both Cullen and Buckie golf courses are close by, and of course you can’t visit this part of Scotland and not try the world class whisky distilleries, with Macduff, Strathisla and Bells close by. The Scottish Dolphin Centre, situated at the beautiful Spey Bay, is approximately 12 miles away and certainly a must-see attraction, while the larger town of Elgin is just 20 miles away.
