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 onsite its delicious daytime fayre and uses local ingredients as much as possible. Ruth Boardman and Annie Cheese run the Secondhand Bookshop - books of all ages for all ages - and stock 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, spirits, and beers, and runs regular tasting sessions. Jude & Steve Simms run Hellygog, a quirky and imaginative studio and shop full of different handmade creations. Tez Watson runs Iolaire Design, Edit, Print with a host of services including retouching old photographs to make them look like new again.
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; a wide range of local produce is also for sale, including award winning beef from the award winning herd of Longhorn Cattle. Giles Pearson is still at Logie where he now has a workshop rather than a showroom and mainly concentrates on restoration and commissions - 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.
Aaron Sterritt has his woodworking workshop at the end of the drive where he also runs green woodworking courses. Throughout the year there are pop up exhibitions, courses and talks, outdoor theatre, details of which are all on the website's What's On page. Plenty to do for a day out - come and visit us!
