This unspoilt landscape provides a wide range of leisure and sporting opportunities including fishing on the world famous Spey and Findhorn rivers, skiing at The Lecht and Cairngorms range, sailing and walking. There are many highly regarded golf courses nearby including Elgin Golf Club (about 2 miles), The Moray Golf Club in Lossiemouth (about 9 miles) and also the two championship links golf courses in Nairn (about 25 miles).

The Culbin Forest, a short drive to the west of Forres (about 14 miles) with its marked walks and cycle trails, offers excellent opportunities for a wide range of outdoor pursuits.

The historic city of Elgin provides a comprehensive range of shops and amenities whilst the surrounding area offers some excellent hotels, restaurants and historic local attractions. There are a number of good primary schools in the local area and schooling up to secondary level is available in Elgin. Gordonstoun Independent School is only 10 miles away near Duffus. Inverness (about 41 miles) has all the facilities of a modern city including its Airport (about 34 miles) which offers regular flights to the south and summer flights to many European destinations.
