Where to stay in Elgin

About Elgin

Back in the Middle Ages, Elgin was one of Scotland's most important towns and today offers a fascinating window into the country's ancient past. You can wander around the ruins of a 13th-century cathedral, visit a hilltop palace and sip your way through world-famous whisky distilleries.

Things to do

Known as the "Lantern of the North", Elgin Cathedral has been watching over the town since 1224. With its octagonal chapter house and soaring arches, many consider the ruins one of Scotland's most beautiful historic sites. Underneath lie the tombs of ancestors descended from the Duke of Gordon.

Spynie Palace is perched high on a hillside and commands sweeping views over a shimmering loch. It was once used as a sanctuary for medieval bishops of Moray. You can peer into the ruins and climb up to David’s Tower to see where they used to entertain the kings and queens of Scotland.

Elgin puts you in the heart of Speyside, Scotland's premier malt whisky-producing region. You can sip your way through a host of local tasting rooms, including the iconic Glenlivet Distillery. In town, don't miss Gordon & MacPhail, a specialist liquor store that sells over 450 varieties of malt whisky.

From cashmere to tartan, Elgin offers numerous upmarket souvenirs. Johnstons of Elgin is one of the town's most popular stores, retailing fine cashmere clothing since 1797. It's housed in the original woollen mill, where guided tours offer a glimpse at the entire process, from goat to garment.

Getting around

Elgin is small and easy to get around on foot, though you'll need a rental car to explore the Speyside region. Elgin Railway Station is just steps from the town centre and offers connections to towns and cities across Scotland.
