The local area guide to living in Keith

Keith is a charming small town in the Isla Valley in Moray, north-east Scotland. It is a few miles from the coast, halfway between Aberdeen and Inverness. A town with a long and eventful history, it now has a population of 4,700 and is a popular tourist destination.

The town is composed of three sections: Old Town (the original settlement), Keith (the more modern, commercial part) and Fife Keith (across the river, originally built as competition to Keith). The Old Town dates back to the late 12th century, and features the Auld Bridge across the river.

Legend has it the bridge was built by two mourning parents as a monument to a child they lost to the waters. It is one of the oldest packhorse bridges in Scotland. The rest of the town is on higher ground away from the rivers, with the majority laid out in an expansion overseen by the Earl of Findlater in 1750.

Keith is at the start of the world-famous Malt Whisky Trail, which attracts many visitors to the area. There are three distilleries within the town: Glenkeith, Strathmill, and Strathisla. Strathisla is the oldest working distillery in the country, originating in 1786, and is now the headquarters of Chivas Brothers, the producers of Chivas Regal.

Surrounding the town are plenty of hiking routes, cycle trails, and beautiful countryside full of wildlife.

Information about the local residents

The 4,700 people living in Keith (as suggested by the 2011 Census) are naturally engaging, friendly and warm, with a lust for life typical of the region.

This is typified in the regular events held by the townspeople. The TMSA Keith Festival, in the middle of June, celebrates music of the area (both traditional and contemporary) with concerts, competitions and open sessions. It attracts a large number of tourists from far and wide every year.

Also held yearly in August is the Keith Country Show. It started in 1872, and is another big attraction for the area. It offers several days of livestock competitions and fun for all the family.

Also worth mentioning as a bastion of Keith's culture is the Kilt and Textile Centre. It is the only school of its kind in the world, teaching kilt making and embroidery.

Keith also has a very strong sporting culture. The town has its own 18-hole golf course, several tennis and squash courts, a swimming pool, and even a skate park. Keith has a cricket club, which plays at Fife Park, and a football club. New residents and visitors are always welcome to take part!
