tourist guide to moray Banner for Highland Spirit Tours

Radio Scotland put the spotlight on Moray and Speyside in its popular Out of Doors programme. This was the first in its Hidden Scotland series and broadcast live from Findhorn Marina with reports from around Moray.

Some of the many activities in Moray were featured, starting off with a flight on a glider over the beautiful Morayshire countryside. A walk up Ben Rinnes near Dufftown provided one of the toughest challenges due to the very windy conditions.

Next it was off mountain biking in Fochabers at the Moray Monster Trails with a bike ride down the infamous Soup Dragon. There were birdwatching updates from Findhorn Bay with osprey putting on a show.

The Moray Trail, a circular route linking the Coastal Path, the Speyside Way and the Dava Way also featured with the BBC inspired Dunphail Breathing Space at Dunphail providing the focus.

The programme also explored the ancient history of Moray including the little known Sculptors Cave, at Covesea, near Lossiemouth (Pictish Symbols) and Scanlan Seminary, Glenlivet.

Watersport activities in Moray were highlighted by a fast paced trip, water rafting down the River Findhorn.
