The Spey 25 Walks from Source to Sea

The Spey 25 Walks from Source to Sea

by: K R Fergus
Best known for salmon fishing and whisky production, the restless River Spey is Scotland's fastest, as well as second longest, river and passes through some of the Highland's finest scenery as it weaves its way to the sea from its source in the shadow of the Monadhliath mountains. As well as mighty mountains and ancient forest, the Spey passes the popular settlements of Kingussie, Aviemore, Grantown-on-Spey, Fochabers, Elgin and Portgordon on its jouney to theMoray Firth.

There is no better way to discover the wildlife, architecture and history of this area of Scotland than to walk. Whatever your ability walking at high or low level, following tough terrain or level paths the 25 routes in this guide offer something for everyone.

Each walk entry begins with distance, time, terrain, start/finish point with grid reference, public transport details and OS map references together with an outline of the walk area. This is followed by route finding instructions and a simple colour overview sketch map. Colour photographs are also included throughout, giving the book an attractive page layout and the pocket size is ideal on the trail. An introduction provides details of the River Spey and practical considerations for walking in the area.
