Our Inspector's view

Historic, listed Cluny Bank occupies a quiet location within walking distance of the centre of Forres, and is an ideal base for exploring the northeast of Scotland. Family-run, the building retains many original architectural features. Public areas include the Altyre Bar with a wide range of whiskies, and Franklin's Restaurant where a real taste of Moray can be experienced. Room service, complimentary WiFi and memorable breakfasts are also provided for guests.

About the area

Discover Moray

The largely undiscovered Moray coast offers miles of red sandstone cliffs that spill down to fine sandy beaches split by dramatic rocky headlands, and a chain of small towns, sleepy villages and fishing ports. The gentle breezes and warm sunshine of lazy summer days give the place a restful, relaxing air, and the evenings are a magical time too, with this part of Scotland renowned for its superb sunsets.

Elgin, the commercial and administrative centre for Moray for over eight centuries, stands on a meandering loop of the River Lossie in a richly fertile agricultural district known as the Garden of Moray. Although the townscape has been reworked and rebuilt over the years, it retains a medieval street plan with narrow alleyways leading off the broad main street, a cobbled market place, and some fine old 18th and 19th century buildings. Elgin has long been a favoured tourist centre for exploring the north-west corner of Grampian and offers a host of attractions.
