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 delicous daytime fayre and uses local ingredients as much as possible. Helen Trussell runs the Secondhand Bookshop - books of 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, 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. Sharon Wooller and Andy Mallon run Cairngorm Leaf & Bean, a specialist coffee, tea and hot chocolate shop where they grind coffee to your specifications and even roast their own beans. Barbara Hogg runs My Secret Dressing Room, selling her own curated selection of new, preloved and vintage ladies' accessories. 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 Cattle. Giles Pearson is still at Logie where he now has a workshop rather than a showroom and mainly concentrates on resoration 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. 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!
