Visit and the surrounding villages and stay in bed & breakfast accommodation:
Ballindalloch, Moray. The township of Ballindalloch stands just below where the River Avon joins the Spey. Ballindalloch Castle, seat of the Grants, now the Macpherson Grant family, is a mixture of the 16th, 17th, and 19th centuries. The central part is old and has a fireplace with the date 1546, while a cape-house or watch-tower was added in 1602. The wings were added in the 19th century.
About ½ mile North of the castle is Inveravon Church, with three early Christian symbol stones in the kirkyard. There are stone circles at Lagmore North of Inveravon, and one near the castle to the South East.
Farming, forestry, and distilling are the chief industries of the district. There is a well-known Aberdeen Angus herd of cattle at Ballindalloch Castle. This is a part of Scotland particularly associated with the best whiskies.
