Plus­car­den crofts are sit­u­ated 6 miles South West of Elgin in North East Scot­land, in a quiet wooded val­ley sur­rounded by woods and farmland.

The glen of Plus­car­den (also known as the vale of St Andrews) has been a haven of peace and tran­quil­lity for nearly 800 years. At the heart of the glen is the 12th cen­tury Bene­dic­tine Abbey which is still home to a com­mu­nity of around 20 monks and the bells call­ing them to prayer can still be heard drift­ing down the val­ley . A visit dur­ing one of their many daily ser­vices is punc­tu­ated with the har­monic tones of Gre­go­rian Chant and the smell of incense.

Moray is also an excel­lent base from which to explore the High­lands. On the edge of the Cairn­gorms National Park , an hour from Loch Ness and the High­land cap­i­tal Inver­ness and well served by bus, train and air links to the rest of the UK and beyond.

Morayshire boasts one of the most favourable cli­mates in Scot­land. With less than 26 inches of annual rain­fall it is drier than East­bourne on the south coast of Eng­land and has more win­ter sun­shine than Lon­don! Tem­per­a­tures are almost 2% above the Scot­tish average
