This small town - colloquially known as Foggieloan, or ‘mossy track’ - lies close to the Moray Firth coastal route and started life as an estate village founded by Alexander Gordon in 1746.

Nearby is the Bridge of Marnoch as well as prehistoric standing stones dating to 1800 BC. Of great interest is 16th-century Crombie Castle – stronghold of the ancient Innes Clan - and its neighbour, Kinnairdy Castle. The latter has a 14th century stone tower and 16th century palace.
