The present church which was built around 1140 is, without doubt, one of the most superb examples of Norman architecture preserved in Scotland and is built in the form of a parallelogram with a small chancel at the east end, separated from the nave by a beautiful and characteristic Norman arch supported on pillars.

Moray is the area that covers the area South of the Moray Firth between Aberdeenshire and Inverness City. Parts of this area also get called Banffshire and Aberdeenshire. It covers a good deal of the Northern and Eastern part of the Whisky trail and includes the area of outstanding natural beauty that is found along the Spey valley. The main city within the area is Elgin with its famous and spectacular cathedral but the whole area is stunning and the Moray Firth coastline has a wild and inspiring atmosphere.
