Garmouth Moray is a village on the left bank of the Spey, Garmouth is about l mile from the sea, formerly it was a port, but the river channel now changes too often for use.

At one time, however it had a considerable timber trade in the export of tree trunks floated down the Spey from Rothiemurchus and Glenmore forests.

Charles ll landed here from Holland on 23 June 1650 and a plaque on a cottage commemorates the place where he signed the Solemn League and Covenant. This signature he later regarded as being made under duress.

Down-river, about l mile away, lies Kingston founded in l784 by two Yorkshiremen who came to buy timber, and named it after Kingston-upon-Hull. Kingston-upon-Spey was a great l8th and

early 19th century shipbuilding centre, with several yards on the Spey, where many large sailing vessels were built.

The northern end of Spey Bay is a perfect spot for watching both sea and estuary it is where the Spey comes out into the Moray and on a good day plenty of species of bird can be viewed, including divers, whooper swans and osprey who fish regularly in the Spey. The Dolphin Centre and restaurant are well located to make the most of your visit, you can also book dolphin watching cruises from here. A nice spot for lunch and enjoying the local wildlife.
