|Speyside Way||65 miles (105 km)||This splendid route is one of the four official Long Distance Routes in Scotland. It follows the River Spey from Buckie, on the Moray Firth, to Aviemore. You will pass Craigellachie, Grantown on Spey and Boat of Garten with coastal and riverside sections to enjoy. There are also terrific views of the Cairngorm Mountains as you approach Aviemore.|
The trail is often completed in the following sections:
Section 1 - Buckie to Spey Bay
Section 2 - Spey Bay to Fochabers
Section 3 - Fochabers to Craigellachie
Section 4 - Craigellachie to Ballindalloch
Section 5 - Ballindalloch to Grantown
Section 6 - Grantown to Nethy Bridge
Section 7 - Nethy Bridge to Boat of Garten
Section 8 - Boat of Garten to Aviemore
This route has been classified as a walking and cycle route but not all of the trail is suitable for cycling. The off road sections between Ballindalloch and Tomintoul, and between Ballindalloch and Cromdale should be avoided on bikes. However the sections between Fochabers and Ballindalloch and between Nethybridge and Aviemore make for excellent cycling. The final section from Boat of Garten to Aviemore, is actually part of the Sustrans millennium cycle way so is also suitable for cycling.
