Mosstodloch (Scottish Gaelic: Mos Tudlach) is a small village in Moray, Scotland, lying near the A96 between Fochabers and Elgin on the west bank of the River Spey.

It has a primary school, Mosstodloch Primary School. Its secondary pupils would usually attend Milne's High School in Fochabers. Construction work on a bypass for Mosstodloch and the neighbouring village of Fochabers, costing £31.5m, started in February 2010 [1] and the Mosstodloch section opened on 27 September 2011. The Fochabers section is opened on January 2012. The project was significantly delayed due to conflict regarding the proposed route, and discovery of a Neolithic settlement on the site of the bypass.

The village also fields a team, Mosstodloch FC in the local welfare league.
