The Speyside Way is one of Scotland’s four official Long Distance Routes (LDRs). It runs between Aviemore, at the heart of Strathspey, 66 miles to Buckie, on the Moray Firth. The route passes through some of Scotland’s most beautiful landscapes; by rivers and mountains, over moorland and along forest paths. It includes a spur to Tomintoul, an additional 15 miles.

Generally the route is gentle rather than arduous, and footpaths are mostly well maintained; look out for the waymarkers in the design of a stylised thistle.

The Speyside Way Ranger Service is based at the Speyside Way Visitor Centre in Aberlour and is responsible for the day to day operation of the whole route.
