The Cabrach, located in rural Moray, is a sparsely populated area ten miles wide by eight miles long consisting of wild mountainous terrain and spectacular scenery. It is one of the top thirty most remote zones in mainland Scotland. It lies in one of the most remote areas of mainland Scotland, on the edge of South East Moray, and is acknowledged to be of outstanding natural beauty. It lies on the northern most fringe of the Cairngorms National Park at the intersection of the countryside roads that connect Speyside to the north, Aberdeen to the east and, Donside to the south. The picturesque town of Huntly is 16 miles away. Elgin, the main town in the region, is 30 miles to the north. The cultural heritage of the Cabrach is the narrative of people in a remote and fragile environment and the story of illicit whisky and its inter-relationship with farming and the landscape.
