The long days of Midsummer  are a great time to explore Moray’s world renowned golden coasts, hills and forests full of hidden fauna and flora, whisky coloured rivers and communities with stories to tell and culture to experience. Whether it’s a gentle amble or an outdoor challenge there’s something for everyone - wildlife and history strolls, watersports, wild swimming, family events, navigation skills, long distance walking and a film night!

Events running again this year include the Moray Way 5 Day Challenge which supports walkers as they attempt to complete the complete the 95 mile circular walk over 5 days, as well as the popular The Ghost Train overnight walk, Secrets of Pluscarden and A Paddle and a Plod. We also have new events including learning the history of Lochindorb with a wild swim, a film night with Moray Speyside Film Club and a chance to try a skiff boat with the Cullen Sea School. Our special guests are Professor John Barrett who will be guiding two heritage walks and a yet to be confirmed sportsperson.

For those looking for alternative entertainment the festival overlaps with the European Pipe Band Championships in Forres on Sat June 24th.
