Rafford (Scottish Gaelic: Ràthard) is a village[1] in Moray, Scotland. It is approximately 2.5 miles southeast of the town of Forres, and 5.5 miles northwest of the village of Dallas.

The parish church was designed by James Gillespie Graham in 1826.[2]

Rafford Village Hall was originally a church, built in 1889, but was bought by the community in 1950 for use as a hall. An earlier church had been built in 1843 and this sat in front of the hall, where the car park is now.

The hall has a large function room which is used for a variety of activities such as WRI, Scottish Country Dancers, exercise classes, ceilidhs, plays, and concerts.
