The popular coastal village of Portknockie occupies a stunning, cliff-top position overlooking a natural picturesque harbour on the striking Moray Firth Coast.

National Cycle Route 1 also passes through Portknockie. Why not visit the delightful town of Cullen, situated beneath spectacular railway viaducts and renowned for its hearty Cullen Skink (smoked haddock and potato soup) or enjoy a spot of golf at the remarkable golf course? Take a pleasant drive to the lively market town of Elgin, home to an imposing cathedral, museums and the mesmerising Biblical Gardens. With the whole of the Moray Coast to explore, with its Whisky and Castle Trail, abundance of historic houses and gardens, sparkling golden sands and hospitable inns, this is a superb base from which to enjoy the delightful north east coast of Scotland.
