Find out more about Scottish history with a Forres holiday letting
Forres, one of the oldest towns in Scotland, condenses everything that the rugged northern country is known for. You’ll find a rich heritage of ancient clan castles, the fishing industry, and a number of superb whisky distilleries, all within reach of your holiday cottage.
Distilleries and clan castles
Forres is the perfect base for distillery tours. For a taste of history, head to Dallas Dhu Whisky Distillery. This picturesque distillery includes a malt barn, peat kiln, and vast vat where fermented wort is transformed into the basis of malt whisky.
About four miles from Forres sits 16th-century Brodie Castle, the ancestral home of the Brodie clan. Besides the structure itself, you'll see stunning works of art and an impressive library. Read an original letter sent by Robert the Bruce, and admire the works of old Dutch masters.
Ice houses and outdoor adventures
You can also take a boat trip along the sparkling River Findhorn, which winds through exquisite Scottish countryside inhabited by heather, sheep, and goats. Children will enjoy river rafting and tubing as well. Alternatively, go canyoning and rappelling with Ace Adventure Outdoor Activities. On your way, you'll find peaceful glens and tranquil forests.
Don't miss Findhorn Village Icehouse and Heritage Centre, a series of underground chambers where you can learn all about Scotland's formative salmon fishing industry. While the chambers themselves were built around 150 years ago as an ice store to pack salmon for its journey to London, the exhibition stretches back even further to prehistoric Findhorn.
Findhorn Bay Arts Festival is a magical arts festival that takes place in Forres every September. Arts projects, light installations, parties, and performances are some of the entertainment you’ll find at this unique festival, which the whole family will enjoy.
