Brodie Castle, Benromach Distillery and Elgin
To make the most of these attractions you'll need one, perhaps two days.
Brodie Castle and Brodie Countryfare
Take the A96 east towards Aberdeen.
After about 5 miles you come to Brodie. You may wish to call into Brodie Countryfare. Situated in a relaxing rural environment just a few minutes drive from Brodie Castle, you'll find one of the most pleasant shopping experiences in the North of Scotland, providing a blend of quality and a traditional Scottish welcome.
Around half-a-mile further along the A96 you'll see signs to Brodie Castle. You can explore the Castle and there are some lovely walks around the grounds. There is a shop and cafe.
If you want to visit a distillery then call in to Benromach in Forres. You'll find it on your left as you drive along the Forres bypass.
Further along the A96 you'll come to Elgin with its ancient cathedral dating back to the 13th Century - now in ruins. Alongside the Cathedral is the Biblical garden which may be worth a visit. Also in Elgin you'll find the famous Johnstone's of Elgin knitwear factory outlet.
If you have time, drive on to Fochabers to the home of Baxters Highland Village - the famous soup people. Find out more about this family business and meander around the various exhibitions. Lovely restaurant on site.
