Speyside Way

Tomintoul Spur

Distance:

15 miles

Grade:

Challenging

Start:

Ballindalloch Station (an alternative start, cutting out some road walking and 2.5 miles, would be the Auldich Car Park)

Finish:

Tomintoul

Circular options:

Circular options exist between Glenlivet and Tomintoul, following Crown Estate waymarked trails.

Terrain:

This route rises to 1800 ft twice to very exposed locations and mainly uses rough hill tracks. Some sections are difficult to follow in snow. This is the hardest (and most spectacular) section of the Speyside Way.

All abilities?

Not suitable for those with walking difficulties. No access for buggies or wheelchairs.

Multi-use?

Use of much of this section by bicycles or horses is not sustainable because of ground conditions. However, some of the Crown Estate tracks provide multi-use opportunities.
