Aberlour has become a popular centre for those walking the Speyside Way and offers a fine selection of small restaurants, cafes and shops for those vital refreshments.

In 2012, the village, whose full name is Charlestown of Aberlour, celebrated the 200th anniversary of its founding. It also holds a popular Highland Games in early August every year.

It is a popular destination for salmon fishers with the River Spey flowing alongside the village and on down to nearby Craigellachie - where the river is crossed by a classic Thomas Telford cast iron bridge.

Aberlour has an internationally acclaimed malt whisky distillery of the same name - and is also the headquarters of the world famous Walkers Pure Butter Shortbread, original sponsors of the Moray Walking Festival and the Moray Way.
