About the location


Elgin 9 miles.

The highly attractive village of Fochabers is situated to the east of the River Spey. A key point along the Speyside Way (long distance path from Buckie to Aviemore), visitors stopping off can marvel at the fine selection of architecture which adorns the village. The Georgian church on the south side of the square is especially striking, complete with its clock-tower dated 1798. In the nearby village of Mosstodloch is Baxters food processing factory, a family-run company that has been operating in the area since 1868. The factory boasts an excellent visitor centre, where you can find out about the history of the company, or enjoy a meal in the restaurant. Dolphins can often be seen playing at sea along this stretch of Scottish coastline, and ospreys can be found fishing for food for their young who nest in the tall pine trees. A superb location for enjoying the great outdoors!
