Speyside Distillery

Speyside Way

A wonderful long distance walk ranging from 65 miles to 92 miles. As you make your way southwest from Buckie towards Aviemore you cannot fail to be impressed by the fantastic landscape in this whisky distilling region of Northeast Scotland.

Start on the rocky shores of the Moray Firth at Buckie, a wee fishing port. From Buckie walk to Fochabers for your overnight stay, and then continue onto Craigellachie, where the Earth Pillars and Telford Bridge are worthwhile side trips. Continue to Ballindalloch and finally Grantown, with its Smokehouse, and Aviemore are reached to complete a wonderful few days walking through some of the best countryside Scotland has to offer.
