Advie is a small village in Morayshire. It lies to the south of the River Spey, and next to the A95 road, roughly half-way between Grantown-on-Spey and Aberlour.


Although the ecclesiastical parish was combined with those of Cromdale and Inverallan in the sixteenth century, the village still has its own church and an old cemetery. A fragment of a Class I Pictish Stone - believed to have been found in the old burial ground - is now preserved in the vestry wall of the present church. Another building of note is The Manse, located nearby.

The village was served by Advie railway station, on the Strathspey Railway. The station opened in 1863, but closed, along with the rest of the line, in 1965.
