Things to do in Garmouth, Moray
The ancient village of Garmouth lies along the banks of the River Spey, where it flows into the Moray Firth.
There are still some of the original clay-bool constructed cottages in existence, the 18th century Garmouth Hotel and the church (now a private dwelling), are amongst the more eye-catching examples of earlier architecture still in prime condition.
Maggie Fair is held on the last Saturday in June each year and people come from all around to browse and buy from stalls selling everything from crafts and baking to flowers and books.
Running parallel to the shingle beach (less than a mile away) at the neighbouring village of Kingston, a path leads along the coast to the golden sands of Lossiemouth.
It is also a popular walk for families who come to the mouth of the Spey hoping to catch sight of the famous Moray Firth dolphins.
Baxters of Speyside have their factory, shops and restaurant on the main A96 just four miles from Garmouth, whilst a few miles further inland is the shortbread factory of Walkers of Aberlour and of course, the whisky!
