Morayshire is also known as Elginshire. It is a northern Scottish county. Morayshire is divided into two different areas naturally. These are the fertile, level coast and the southern hilly country region. The county does not have any major mountains. Its highest peaks are limited to the hills of Carn Ruigh at 1,784 feet, Larig Hill at 1,783 feet, and Carn Kitty at 1,711 feet.
For rivers, Morayshire features two significant ones, the Findhorn and the Spey. The Spey divides the Forest of Darnaway from the woods of Altyre. In its first seven miles flowing through Morayshire, the Findhorn travels by among the most beautiful scenery in all of Scotland. It floods without much warning. The other rivers in Morayshire include the Lossie River than runs thirty-four miles to the Moray Firth. Both the Finhorn and the Spey Rivers are renowned for their salmon fishing. Smaller streams in the county also provide good fishing opportunities.
Lochs in this county are not significant or many. A few of them are Loch-na-Bo, Loch Spynie, the Loch of Blairs, and Loch Dallas. The biggest lake is Lochindorb, which is two miles long and also two miles wide. On an island along the upper end stands the Lochindorb Castle ruins.
The county's southern half includes hills and glens. Several of these attractive glens are the Glens of Lossie, Rothes, Tulchan, and Beag. The Valley of Strathspey is famed for its gorgeous expansive terrain.
