Activity Level:


Speyside is a walker’s paradise, with a network of pathways, many of them on abandoned railway lines with gentle gradients, criss-crossing this rich, fertile landscape of rolling hills and wooded glens. The River Spey lies at its heart and will be our constant companion as we enjoy three easy walks that eventually lead us to the sea on the Moray coast. The October departure promises to be especially spectacular with a riotous display of autumn colours to brighten our days.

Travelling north we break ourselves in gently with a short walk through the leafy Hermitage in Perthshire before continuing to our comfortable hotel in Speyside. From here we enjoy three different walks, the first in the surrounding area as we pick up part of the Speyside Way. Next we follow a circular route through the heart of the whisky producing area, taking in Dufftown, Aberlour and Craigellachie, followed by a walk that take us to the mouth of the river on the Moray Firth. On the way home we wind down with a gentle forest walk and admire the Queen’s View near Pitlochry
