The River Spey, famed both for its salmon and for its distilleries, flows almost a hundred miles, from the Monadhliath Mountains, past the Cairngorms to the Moray Firth.
The Speyside Way official long-distance trail, offers easy walking on good paths and along disused railway lines. It runs for 66 miles from Aviemore to the old port of Buckie on the Moray coast, together with a 20-mile extension back to Newtonmore it makes a perfect easy week’s walk.
