Hello summer!

Summer comes but once a year, and while it’s not going to be ‘taps aff’ weather every day, let’s make the most of the outdoors before the darker nights start creeping in.

And is there a better location to while away your time in the great outdoors? We have a stunning natural playground on our doorstep. From gentle cycle paths to bona fide ‘monster trails’, multiple harbours, marked on and off-road walking routes and more woodlands than you could even try to shake a stick at.

But when we’re this spoiled for choice, the all-important question is where to begin? Here are some useful links which should provide you with inspiration.

  • Maps of core paths across Moray
    These include public roads/roadside paths, off-road paths and more. Pull on your walking boots and get exploring
  • Find a playpark
    Did you know we maintain over 90 playparks? That’s enough to keep you and your little bundles of energy active all summer long
  • Parks, gardens and playing fields
    Here you’ll find information on our parks and gardens, as well as how to book pitches and pavilions.
  • Biblical garden
    Take a stroll around the garden in central Elgin and enjoy the sights and smells.
  • Find a forest
    Enter ‘Moray’ into the region box on Forestry Commission Scotland’s website to see a list of all their local forests
  • Moray Ways
