Peaceful, remote woodland
Located in the stunningly beautiful Pluscarden Valley, home to the 13th century Pluscarden Priory and situated between the historic towns of Forres and Elgin. The glen is a peaceful place, mainly wooded and sparsely populated. The single track road twists and turns following the course of the black burn which ultimately flows into the river Lossie.
Moray is home to the worlds only Malt Whisky Trail and Speyside has the greatest concentration of malt whisky distilleries in Scotland. The area also boasts many craft breweries and artisan gin producers.
