    Visit Christies of Fochabers for a family day out. Everything you need for the Garden, Gifts, Lifestyle, Clothing, Personal Treats and our Restaurant offers everything from Snacks to Main Meals. Our home bakes are reputed to be the best.

    Christies Garden Centre in Fochabers has a proud gardening heritage. Established in 1820 by Thomas Christie, the business is now run by the fifth generation of the family!

    Over 194 years it has grown to become one of Scotland’s largest independent family-run garden centre and offers everything you need for the garden and its care – and a lot more besides.

    Its gift and lifestyle ranges are well-known in Moray. This is the place to come for wonderful wedding and christening gifts or unusual birthday presents. From jewellery, scarves and handbags to books, clothing and toys – there really is something for all occasions, for all the family. For the home, there’s furniture and furnishings, kitchen essentials, crockery and even art for your walls.

    For gardeners, the plant area offers a large range of plants, trees and shrubs attractively laid out –with inspiration in spades...

    If you want to make a splash in the garden with a water feature there’s everything from pond liners and pumps to fish!

    Christies’ Teapots Restaurant is famous for its cakes and scones – home-made, onsite, by its own bakers. Serving breakfast, lunch and afternoon tea, everything is freshly prepared using local, seasonal ingredients where possible.

    The Scottish High Tea served on Sundays in the 150 seat restaurant is a weekly essential for many local families.

    Children love going to Christies. Giant pet bunnies take a daily hop round the centre, there’s a large aviary including a talking parrot, and last year a new play garden was created with go-karts, slides, swings and lots more! It opens during weekends and holidays.

    Fun for every generation!
