Long Distance Paths
The Speyside Way
The Speyside Way is one of Scotland's four Long Distance Routes (LDRs). It runs for over 60 miles between Buckie, on the Moray Firth, and Aviemore at the heart of Strathspey, following the valley of the River Spey for much of the way. The route passes through some of Scotland's most beautiful landscapes; by rivers and mountains, over moorland and along forest paths.
The Speyside Way Ranger Service is based at the Speyside Way Visitor Centre at Aberlour and looks after the day to day operation of the whole route, which is managed by Moray Council on behalf of the Speyside Way Management Group. Generally the going is mainly gentle rather than arduous, and footpaths are mostly well maintained; look out for the waymarkers in the design of a stylised thistle.
