About the neighbourhood
Keith is a small town in Moray council area of north of Scotland. It is made up of three distinct sections. Old Town, Keith and Fife Keith where the original settlement was first established can be dated back to 1180. Keith is the main centre and Fife Keith which was originally a separate town built in competition by the Earl of Fife but, having proved less successful economically eventually joined now only by the river.
Getting around
Keith Railway Station is very convenient for getting about and also Stagecoach has many local buses to get you to nearby town and villages.. To have a car would be beneficial but not necessary. There are many beautiful walks in the area The Keith Heritage Group have published a number of maps that lead visitors on walking tours through the town and surrounding countryside.
