There is no place in the British Isles quite like Orkney. It is breathtakingly beautiful and with more than 70 islands, many of which are uninhabited, it is the perfect destination for being at one with nature, in wide open spaces. As you travel across Orkney, its Neolithic ancestry is evident in the many ancient monuments, stone circles and tombs that are testament to its UNESCO World Heritage Site status and a fascinating history stretching back 6,000 years. Discover tales of Viking intruders, wartime exploits and immerse yourself in Orkney’s rich maritime heritage

Orkney has its own distinct culture and traditions with many museums, galleries, craft workshops, independent gifts shops, cafes, bars and restaurant – there is no shortage of things to do.
For families there is the unmissable all-weather Pickaquoy Centre in Kirkwall, a fabulous £15 million facility that includes a swimming pool, fitness and exercise suites, sports facilities and a health zone. Not only that, there’s a cinema, cafe, climbing wall and a soft play area for the little ones.

And if that’s not enough, Orkney was voted the most romantic destination in the UK by publishers Mills and Boon at its prestigious 2015 Romantics Awards. What better place to pop the question

Steeped in history and good old Scottish/English rivalry, it was the cradle for the spread of Christianity in Scotland and the north of England. The Borders is a place of beautiful landscapes and a wonderful place to explore by foot, bike, car or bus.

The Borders is fairly well know too for some of the north’s major sporting events including the Melrose Sevens Rugby Tournament in April, the Kelso Races and The River Tweed is a mecca for salmon and trout anglers. When you add to this, stately homes, beautiful abbeys and fantastic transport links to Edinburgh and beyond, The Scottish Borders make for a great holiday destination.

Speyside is known for its beautiful rolling countryside, Scots pine and native woodlands, pretty villages and towns and as a haven for outdoor pursuits.

What better way to discover all this than along the Speyside Way which begins at Cluny Square in the centre of the fishing town of Buckie and follows the coast west before heading inland along the course of the River Spey, passed villages, towns and famous distilleries, woodlands and rolling green countryside before ending in Aviemore.

If travelling other than by foot, the historic villages of Findhorn, nestled on the edge of Findhorn Bay and Forres, with their own unique attractions, from Pictish standing stones to more distilleries , are equally appealing.

The area is not just known for its superb scenery- and its drams – it also has a feast of history and culture, with castles a-plenty and museums to open the eyes to traditions and cultures of by-gone days.

The Moray Coast includes the town of Buckie, pretty coastal fishing villages of Cullen, Portknockie and Findochty. At the height of the fishing industry in Scotland, Portknockie was a significant herring port with around 100 sailing boats in its harbour. Today it still has a fleet of around 10 fishing boats with five smaller creel boats landing creels and mackerel

Cullen is a busy, popular village in the summer months and is the name-sake of the famous Cullen Skink soup, comprising smoked haddock, milk, potato and onion.

Buckie is a burgh town on the Moray Firth and is the third largest town in the Moray area after Elgin and Forres. Buckie is the amalgamation of a series of separate fishing villages.  A new town was laid out in the late 18th century and early 19th century above and behind the fishing villages and this area revolves around Cluny Square, with East Church Street and West Church Street leading from it and the North Kirk at one corner.
