Living at Moy is about as close to living in the country that you can get. Surrounded by farm fields and just a few minutes from the thousands of acres of Culbin Forest with the opportunities for walking, running, cycling, horse riding, bird watching and enjoying the deserted beaches at the bar.  A bridge, over the River Findhorn at Broom of Moy makes commuting into Forres without a car easy.

In the catchment area for Dyke Primary school, this provides the opportunity to attend a small and desirable village school. With only approximately 90 children, the "Tatler Guide to the Best State Primary Schools (2017)" listed Dyke Primary in the Top 10 and the only listed Primary school in Scotland, noting "Dyke Primary is driven by the community spirit - it's like a big family". Combined with its extremely easy access to the amenities of Forres and Nairn and easy access to the A96 to Inverness airport and Aberdeen airport, Moy is about as perfect a place as you could hope to live.
