The Speyside Way

The Speyside Way is one of four official Long Distance Routes in Scotland (the others are the West Highland Way, the Southern Upland Way and the Great Glen Way). It was first opened in 1981, to run from Spey Bay to Ballindalloch, with a spur to Tomintoul being added in 1990. A northern extension from Spey Bay to Buckie followed in 1999, with the route being further extended from Ballindalloch toAviemore in April 2000. The route now links the Moray coast with the edge of the Grampian Mountains, generally following the valley of the River Spey. Plans are well advanced to complete the route to Newtonmore, though no date for opening this last section has yet been set.
The Speyside Way is managed by the three Access Authorities along the route - the Moray Council, the Highland Council and the Cairngorms National Park Authority
The Moray Council Countryside Ranger Service, based in the Visitor Centre in Aberlour, covers the northern section of the route (from Buckie to Advie) and can provide information for the whole route.
