The railway arrived in Elgin in 1852, and the link with Lossiemouth on the coast was crucial to both the growth of the town and its late 19th century prosperity. Travellers don’t get much of a Victorian flavour today, as the platforms look out over modern shops, and the station buildings themselves were completely rebuilt in 1990. Regular services from Elgin include trains to Inverness and Aberdeen, with a single weekday train to Dundee and Edinburgh Waverley. The pedestrianised High Street in the town centre and the St Giles Shopping Centre are a ten minute walk north of the station. Elgin is in the Speyside whisky producing region of Scotland, and the west end of town is home to the Glen Moray Distillery. Open every weekday (and Saturdays in summer), the distillery offers five scheduled tours a day and is a twenty-five minute walk from the station.
