Moray is a magical part of Scotland. After all, where else can you find witches’ stones, crouching devils and Gregorian chanting?
You can discover all of these and much more with today’s Big Deal on a two night stay at the lovely Knockomie Hotel in Moray.
2 night mini-break
The deal is for two people to enjoy a two night stay in a double or twin master bedroom at the four star Knockomie Hotel in Forres.
A full cooked breakfast is included in the deal as are a cream tea for each guest on arrival plus a bottle of Prosecco in your room when you check in.
Set in four acres of gardens, the Knockomie is a family run hotel with fifteen individually decorated rooms.
It has won a number of awards including one for customer care at the Highland and Island Tourism Awards.
The team pride themselves on their friendly, unstuffy service so you can be sure of a warm welcome.
If you choose to dine at the hotel then you will enjoy meals cooked using top quality ingredients from the surrounding area. The menu changes regularly but typical dishes might be the game terrine, oak-smoked salmon or the finest local beef from Macbeth’s butchers in Forres.
There are dozens of distillers within easy striking distance of the hotel and the hotel’s Malt Whisky Library carries around eighty different malts for guests to sample.
The staff are also extremely knowledgeable about their Scotch should you fancy doing a tutored tasting.
Lots to do
The area is well provided with golf courses and, for those who prefer not to ruin a good walk, there are plenty of coastal trails nearby. If you are lucky, you may spot dolphins in the Moray Firth.
As to the witches’ stone, it can be found outside Forres police station while the crouching devil sits on the roof of Keith police station. For the Gregorian chanting, head to Pluscadden Abbey where the Benedictine monks sing by candlelight.
