Location description from owner

The Scotland region

Morayshire in North East of Scotland; is bounded North by the Moray Firth, East and South East by Banff, South West by Inverness, and West by Nairn; coast-line, 30 miles; Along the sea-coast the surface is mostly low and sandy; inland it consists of fertile valleys, divided by low hills, which gradually rise to the mountains on the South border. In the South a large portion of the surface is still covered by forest. The principal rivers are the Spey, Lossie, and Findhorn; the Spey and the Findhorn have salmon and grilse, and in the lochs there is abundance of trout; large quantities of haddock, cod, and ling are caught in the Moray Firth.
The principal crops are wheat, oats, potatoes, and turnips, Granite occurs in the South and red sandstone in the North. There are large quarries of freestone and a few slate quarries; whisky is distilled; and there is some shipbuilding at the mouth of the Spey; but otherwise the industries, besides agriculture and fishing, are unimportant. Corn, timber, salmon, and whisky are the chief exports.

Portknockie

Portknockie is a lovely peaceful fishing village and overlooks a natural harbour on the Moray Coast. Portknockie has a fantastic community spirit and has won 'Best village in bloom' many times in the past. There are many coastal walks from the cottage along the rugged cliffs which lead to coves and beaches, and you may pass the local landmark of Bow Fiddle rock. You could also walk or cycle the old railway viaduct from the village to Cullen a couple of miles away. Or just sit at the top of the harbour and watch the activities of the harbour. The area has a variety of wildlife with colonies of seabirds, dolphins and seals.
You do not have to venture far as Portknockie has a variety of shops, including a general food store, chemist, post office, hairdressers, fish and chip shop and an inn.
For the children there is a large play park and down at the harbour is a small paddling pool.

Further away you can enjoy Castles, Whisky Trails, Golf, Fishing, Skiing, Boat Trips, Pony Treking and many more. Attractions nearby include Baxter's Visitor Centre, Christies Garden Centre both in Focherbers, Walkers Shortbread in Aberlour, Johnstones Wollen Mill in Elgin and for the children the Playbarn and Carting at Lhanbryde, Macduff Aquarium, Elgin Leisure Pool and Ice-ring and Landmark Fun Park at Carrbridge.
