The District of Moray

The District of Moray. Foolish visitors have, throughout history, travelled through Moray. The wise ones stayed. They diverted from the main road from Aberdeen to Inverness; only a few yards were enough. They found a beautiful spot with a genial climate, semi-independent from the rest of Scotland, blessed with in fair quantities of exceptional scenery, recreation and history. For this is the country of Macbeth; once a centre of Pictland and brushed by the Romans, which became the great medieval Province of Moray. At Elgin was possibly Scotland's most beautiful cathedral, whose bishops resided in the majestic palace of Spynie. Temporal power lay in the great castles of Darnaway, Duffus, Balvenie, Gauldwell, Rothes, Drumin. Lochindorb and Auchindoun; the tower houses and classical mansions of later generations ans a rash of planned towns and villages from Cullen to Lossiemouth, Dufftown to Tomintoul. Here also are great churches, magnificent abbeys, substantial farms and a necklace of exquisite fishing villages. The District of Moray: An Illustrated Architectural Guide.
