Logie Steading Visitor Centre

Country Estates

Logie House, Dunphail, Forres, Morayshire, IV36 2QN

    Welcome to Logie Steading Visitor Centre. The stone farm buildings are home to a shopping village, café and heritage centre. Walk around the Logie House garden or along the dramatic River Findhorn to complete your visit.

    Originally built as a model farm in the 1920's, Logie Steading was converted in 1991 to welcome visitors to the dramatic Findhorn Valley, near the well-known walks at Randolph's Leap.  The Steading houses a range of individual businesses enthusastically run by their owners.  The Olive Tree Cafe cooks, on site, most of what they serve and uses local ingredients as much as possible.  Helen Trussell runs the Secondhand Bookshop - books for all ages for all ages - and stocks an enormous range of books, from the popular to the fairly obscure.  The Art Gallery exhibits work from across Scotland and further afield - including some gorgeous glass and pottery from Cornwall where there is such a strong creative ethos.  Logie Whisky and Wine has an ever growing choice of wines and spirits, and beers, and run regular tasting sessions.  Christine and Kirsty Wallace run Diva Designs where they make felt into a huge variety of different things - and teach felt-making.  Jude Simms runs Hellygog, a quirky and imaginative studio and shop full of different handmade creations. Logie House Gardens are open every day and many of the plants in the gardens are propagated to be sold in the Farm & Garden Shop; local produce is also for sale, including award winning beef from the award winning (yes, different awards!) herd of Longhorn CattleGiles Pearson has stopped selling antiques but is still at Logie concentrating on resotraion - particularly his speciality, chairs. There is a playground, and walks along the river Findhorn and you can find out more about the area in the River Findhorn Heritage Centre.  Throughout the year there are pop up exhibitions, courses and talks, outside theatre, details of which are all on the website.  Plenty to do for a day out - come and visit us!
