RothesLinn is a turf zone in the municipality of Moray in the region of Scotland in United Kingdom.


The zone is located at a waterfall in a valley near to the village of Rothes.


The zone is located near the Dounie zone. From the Glenrothes distillery in the village, follow signs for 'Dounie Walk', passing through the Turf zone 'Dounie' until the path splits in two. Do not take the path going back uphill. It leads to a viewpoint high above the waterfall. The waterfall is usually only visible from here in winter because of trees. Instead, turn right and follow the path downhill towards the burn and turn left where trees have been cleared to create a path. Cross the burn and walk along the path to the left. Cross the burn again by stepping on large rocks and the waterfall will eventually come in to view. GPS signal can be patchy due to the location but with a bit of perseverance the zone can be taken.


Although Glenrothes Distillery is not open to the public for visits, the nearby Glen Grant distillery does offer visits, a shop and extensive gardens. The Turf zone 'Glenniezone' is located at Glen Grant on the path from the car park to the visitor centre.
