Forres is an ancient Royal Burgh Town in the North of Scotland on the Moray Coast. Royal Burghs were founded by the Kings of the 12th century to encourage trade and economic improvement.
Sitting between the floodplain of the River Findhorn and the wooded slopes of Cluny and Sanquhar Hills, Forres is well known for its award wining floral sculptures and is steeped in local history and traditions. Traditionally a market town, Forres still maintains a wide variety of small local independent traders.
