Speyside Way

Download the Speyside Way map

Speyside is known for its beautiful rolling countryside, Scots pine and native woodlands, pretty villages and towns and as a haven for outdoor pursuits.

What better way to discover all this than along the Speyside Way which begins at Cluny Square in the centre of the fishing town of Buckie and follows the coast west before heading inland along the course of the River Spey, passed villages, towns and famous distilleries, woodlands and rolling green countryside before ending in Aviemore.

If travelling other than by foot, the historic villages of Findhorn, nestled on the edge of Findhorn Bay and Forres, with their own unique attractions, from Pictish standing stones to more distilleries , are equally appealing.

The area is not just known for its superb scenery- and its drams – it also has a feast of history and culture, with castles a-plenty and museums to open the eyes to traditions and cultures of by-gone days.

The Moray Coast


ArrowDownload The Moray Coast map

The Moray Coast includes the town of Buckie, pretty coastal fishing villages of Cullen, Portknockie and  Findochty.

At the height of the fishing industry in Scotland, Portknockie was a significant herring port with around 100 sailing boats in its harbour. Today it still has a fleet of around 10 fishing boats with five smaller creel boats landing creels and mackerel.

Cullen is a busy, popular village in the summer months and is the name-sake of the famous Cullen Skink soup, comprising smoked haddock, milk, potato and onion.

Inland is the popular tourist village of Fochabers, close to the River Spey and on the A96 as well as a number of popular peaks for walking including Bin Hill, Black Hill, and Hill of Maud.

Buckie is a burgh town on the Moray Firth and is the third largest town in the Moray area after Elgin and Forres.

It lies between Banff and Elgin on the north-east coast of Scotland and grew up either side of the Burn of Buckie which winds its way through the centre of the town.

Buckie is the amalgamation of a series of separate fishing villages.  A new town was laid out in the late 18th century and early 19th century above and behind the fishing villages and this area revolves around Cluny Square, with East Church Street and West Church Street leading from it and the North Kirk at one corner.
