The Speyside Way runs from Buckie on the shore of the Moray Firth to the famous winter resort of Aviemore. There are two spurs on the walk, one to Dufftown and the other to Tomintoul. The total distance (including spurs) is 84 miles. The route follows the river Spey south from the Grampian coast through forests, past whisky distilleries and along an old railway track to the famous Highland resort. The Spey is said to be the fastest flowing and cleanest river in Britain.
