A mobile app travel guide has been developed in Moray in a project led by the National Library of Scotland.

Local schools and community volunteers have worked with the Learning Team at NLS to develop 'Great Escapes Moray', now available free from the Apple App Store.

The travel guide features 20 of the best things to see in the area, including:

  • Lossiemouth, the birthplace of Ramsay MacDonald (1866-1937), Britain's first Labour Prime Minister
  • Elgin Cathedral
  • Early reptile footprints
  • Pluscarden Abbey
  • The local whisky industry.

Archive film clips, interviews with local people, audio, images, and text are all used to bring the content alive. Much of it comes from NLS archives.

The app is is available for iPhone 4 and above, iPod Touch and iPad.
