Forres & District
Forres is one of Scotland's oldest small towns, and also one of its most attractive - the town's impressive parks and gardens with outstanding floral sculptures have led to many awards from the prestigious Britain and Scotland in Bloom.
Sitting between the floodplain of the River Findhorn and the wooded slopes of Cluny and Sanquhar Hills, Forres is steeped in local history and traditions. Historically a market town and a centre for trade from nearby coastal ports, Forres packs a real punch in history and combined with its many attractions and local activities it appeals to visitors of all ages, whether visiting for a few hours or a few weeks.
While renowned for its parks and gardens, Forres has so much more to offer set in its enviable position amid such serene countryside with access to peaceful fishing villages, endless quiet sandy beaches and miles of waymarked woodland and river walks that cater to all abilities.
Forres does not disappoint when it comes to activities, providing a base for the renowned Malt Whisky Trail and Castle Trail. The town is packed with historical monuments and magnificent architecture and among an expansive list offers golfing; distillery tours; pony trekking; tennis, safe and expansive children’s play areas; world renowned fishing; nearby sailing centres; cycling and mountain biking.
