Millbuies Loch was created by the damming of streams to provide angling facilities on the Loch. Moray District Council took over the estate in 1975 and the fishing was extended to the public. Many improvements were made to the estate over the years, and now Millbuies offers a variety of family orientated activities. There is a car park and grass area for play with picnic tables and barbecue points.
The featured path around the loch is hard aggregate with various other paths leading off to scenic views. A large variety of rhododendrons and trees have been planted and this attracts wildlife, from red squirrels feeding at the station to roe deer, badger, rabbit and if you are quiet and lucky, pine martin.
On the loch there is mallard, tufted duck, moorhen and swan. In the loch, which is stocked with rainbow trout, you can hire a boat for fly-fishing. This is an excellent outdoor environment to be enjoyed by the whole family
Horse users are asked not to use the lochside paths as they are narrow and may be subject to erosion.
