After a late start due to our snowy April gardens, parks and fields are bursting with colourful flowers, and little lambs are a joy to see in the farmers’ fields around Moray.
With spring comes longer (and hopefully warmer) days. Around May the sun does not set until after 9pm which extends until almost 11pm in mid-summer in Moray so you get a lot more day for your money!
The tourism season in Moray is well under way and I am happy to report that now almost all Moray’s tourist attractions are open, ready to welcome visitors and Ace Taxis are keen to show them off to you.
Whether it’s castles – Ballindalloch Castle; Brodie Castle; Duffus castle are well worth a visit; abbeys and cathedrals –Elgin Cathedral; Kinloss Abbey, Pluscarden Abbey all worth a stop; Spynie Palace is fascinating. Or wildlife – the Whale and Dolphin Centre is in Moray and whilst we can’t guarantee it there’s always a chance of catching sight of whales or dolphins in the Moray Firth; deer on the hills; birds in abundance wading on the shores or in woodland inland and even a polar bear cub – the first polar bear cub to be born in the UK is in the Highland wildlife park just over an hour’s drive from Elgin mostly along the A95 where there is a number of places to visit along the way.
And of course a huge number of Moray’s 50 plus Distilleries are open to the public for visits and tours. But which distillery and which castle? Well we at Ace Taxis have been to most over the years, if not them all, and let us help you choose a route and choose a venue. Let us know what it is you are interested in and we can plan a tour around your interests.
Visitor numbers are increasing in Moray year on year so it’s about time you came here to find out why people are coming here and so many of them come back.
