Things to do in Drybridge, Moray
Drybridge is a small, yet historic hamlet just above the town of Buckie. It has a number of small traditional cottages and the remains of the old railway viaduct. Drybridge is in an area of stunningly unspoiled Scottish landscape with derelict crofts and working farms.
A stream traverses the hamlet and follows the road beneath the viaduct. It is believed that this supplies the nearby whisky distillery below. There are a number of newer properties on the periphery but predominantly it is located in a sheltered crossing of moorland roads amongst mixed, established trees.
The former blacksmiths forge is now an antiques emporium and there is also a cottages that sells roses.
Above Drybridge is an old monastery that used to be an expensive restaurant. The original pews remain. It was converted beautifully and the views across the Moray firth from outside its gates is outstanding. I wonder whether anyone has conducted an archeological dig in its policies?
Drybridge may not be a place to stay unless you are looking for isolation and total peace and quiet. If you get the chance to pass through Drybridge and on up the hill towards the old monastery then you will not be disappointed.
