Star gazers given more than they bargained for in Speyside village

Noel Gallagher was one of the celebrities to descend on Craigellachie.

All roads led to Moray for some of the UK’s A-list celebrities at the weekend with Speyside the party target for such as Kate Moss and Noel Gallagher.

The supermodel and former Oasis star were joined by actress Sadie Frost at the Craigellachie Hotel on Saturday to help friend of the stars and former supermodel Rosemary Ferguson celebrate her 40th birthday.

First hints that Moray was to be the venue for the star-studded bash came in a flurry of social media messages early on Saturday morning prompted by a series of pictures posted by Radio One DJ Nick Grimshaw as he travelled north for the party.

Images and video clips soon followed of stars dancing the night away in the hotel bar for a party that was still going on Sunday morning.

The Craigellachie only reopened in May last year after undergoing major renovation work by new owner Piers Adam, who invested around £3million in revamping the property.

Mr Adam has been a main player in the London club scene since the 1980’s and it was expected that it would be only a matter of time before he drew big names to the Moray village.
