Walking Holiday in Scotland on
Fochabers, Craigellachie, Ballindalloch,
Tomintoul and Grantown on Spey.
|The Speyside Way runs from the coast at Buckie,
through the Spey Valley and the heart of the malt whisky country, towards the foothills of the Cairngorm Mountains.
This is a conservation area and a haven for wildlife.
On this walking holiday in Scotland you can visit many
of the Scottish Whisky distilleries: Aberlour, Glenfiddich, Glenlivet, and Macallan to name but a few.
We offer this walking holiday in an upstream direction
as this is how the guide book is written.
This route intersects with the Moray Coastal Trail and the
Dava Way. We will be adding these routes soon.
|This 77 mile walk on the Speyside Way starts in the fishing port of Buckie on the Moray Firth following the coast to Tugnet. Then you walk in the Spey Valley via Fochabers, Craigellachie, Dufftown, Ballindalloch, Grantown on Spey to Aviemore. You could visit Speyside Cooperage Visitors Centre and Macallan, Aberlour, Knockando, Tamdhu, Cragganmore and Glenfiddich Distilleries.|
