After the hustle and bustle of Edinburgh, we were ready for some quiet time and Forres was just the place. We weren’t sure what to expect of this little town as, like Fowey, this was a random selection. The “Plan” was to explore the highlands and Forres seemed like a good location to setup and perhaps rent a car for a day or two.
Those plans quickly changed once we got to Forres. No need to go anywhere! Plenty to keep us occupied in this little town. It was a very pleasant surprise.
We felt very comfortable and at home at our Airbnb. Kasm even got to have his own room which was a huge welcome after being cooped up in one room with us for the last couple of weeks!
Our place, “Boyne House”, was a 230-year-old Merchant House. We had the “servant” floor, a self-contained apartment.
Forres felt like a magical land. It won the bloom award in Scotland on several occasions. The Gardens in town are stunning and there are multiple footpaths through forested areas, beautiful parks, and along the Burn of Mosset. It is best described through images so I’ll let our photos do the talking
