Morayshire - Spey Bay

Spey Bay is a small settlement in Moray, Scotland. It is situated at the eastern side of the mouth of the River Spey on the coast of the Moray Firth between the village of Kingston on the western side of the Spey, and the fishing port of Buckie to the east.

Spey Bay's origins are in salmon fishing on the Spey. The fishing station is no longer operational but the Tugnet icehouse - claimed to be the largest in Scotland - remains as a tourist attraction.
A part of the former fishing station has been converted to provide the Moray Firth Wildlife Centre, operated by the Whale and Dolphin Conservation Society. Famed for the dolphins, the Centre is within a wildlife haven that is also home toOspreys, grey and harbour seals, otters, wildfowl and waders. It is part of a 450ha nature reserve which forms part of the largest vegetated shingle habitat in Scotland.
The Speyside Way long-distance footpath passes through Spey Bay.
The Spey Bay Golf Club along the side of the Speyside Way long-distance footpath.

The Rest is a dog-friendly bed and breakfast situated right by the beach in the wildlife haven of Spey Bay. The Whale and Dolphin Conservation Society visitor centre is at the end of the road. The world famous Spey Bay golf links, with newly refurbished club house, is at the other end. The mouth of the river spey is an RSPB protection site and is a great spot for watching dolphins, seals, otters and ospreys. For walkers we are situated on the Speyside Way, just 6 miles from the end of the walk at Buckie. We are near to the Whisky trail and in the heart of salmon fishing country. If all this activity is too much you might like to spend your evenings on the beach outside the back garden. Listen to the gentle crash of the waves and the crackle of your camp fire as you admire the spectacular views across the Moray firthto the mountains of Caithness.

Our aim is to make our property feel like your home from home. We take great pride in the positive feedback we receive from guests. You can check out some pictures on the gallery page.
