Moy and Dalarossie is a parish in the north-east of Inverness-shire. The name comes from the Gaelic Magh, meaning 'a plain' and DalFhearghais, 'Fergus' dale').

The whole parish may be said to consist of two straths, that in the north-west occupied by Loch Moy and the streams flowing into it, and the much larger one extending south-westward through the length of the parish being occupied by the Findhorn and the streams flowing into it. The hamlets of Dalbeg, Dalmigavie, Corrievorrie, Findhorn Bridge and Tomatin are situated in this latter strath.

The parish is bounded to the north by the parish of Croy and Dalcross and Cawdor (both in Nairnshire), on the east by the parish of Duthil and Rothiemurchus, on the south-east by the parishes of Alvie and Laggan, to the south by Laggan, to the west by the parish of Boleskine and Abertarff, and south-west by the parish of Daviot and Dunlichity.
