The MOST popular equestrian trail in UK.

North of Tomintoul, the 60 mile Speyside Way route is a rough, rolling trek heading north through the foothills of the Cairngorms to Spey Bay. The Speyside Way starts in Tomintoul and is marked by wooden posts. The route varies from grass to bridleway.

Horse riding on the Speyside Way is permitted only on the old railway line, between Dufftown and Ballindalloch (17 miles). Riders must be prepared to negotiate fords in two places, and a series of low, single rail stiles. Use of the footpath on horse-back is a privilege, not a right.
