The Speyside Way is the farthest north of the four long distance routes in Scotland, this section being completed in April 2000. You will start in Aviemore on the edge of the Cairngorm Mountains and travel north eastwards to Buckie on the coast of the Moray Firth, following the flow of the River Spey. A trip of approximately 66 miles.
Your self-guided trip is relatively easy walking along good paths which are well waymarked and achievable for most walkers. There are opportunities to detour to places of interest, such as the Earth Pillars at Aultdearg, the attractive cast iron single span bridge at Craigellache, with Chessmen towers and various distilleries producing some of the most popular whiskies, along the way.
