Cabrach (Scottish Gaelic: A' Chabrach) is a civil parish in Aberdeenshire and Moray, Scotland. The name means "antler place" in Scottish Gaelic and expresses how the area was, at one time, the home of herds of red deer.

The Cabrach, located in rural Moray, is a sparsely populated area ten miles wide by eight miles long consisting of mountainous terrain. It is one of the top thirty most remote zones in mainland Scotland.[citation needed] It lies in one of the most remote areas of mainland Scotland, on the edge of South East Moray. It lies on the northernmost fringe of the Cairngorms National Park at the intersection of the countryside roads that connect Speyside to the north, Aberdeen to the east and, Donside to the south. The town of Huntly is 16 miles away. Elgin, the main town in the region, is 30 miles to the north.
