The Craigellachie Nature Reserve is very close to the town and a great option for walkers. Just head west from the town and you will soon come to the reserve which includes waymarked paths, several small lochs, woodland trails and stunning views of the Cairngorms.
Loch an Eilein can be found just to the south of the town. There's a nice footpath around the loch which is in a beautiful and tranquil location with the still waters surrounded by stunning hills and mountains.
The Speyside Way long distance trail is another great option. You can follow the trail north to Boat of Garten and visit the Osprey Centre Nature Reserve next to Loch Garten in the Abernethy Forest.
