Speyside Way Spur

SW spur c Brian Fowler lores

SW Spur C B Fowler
Address:
Tomintoul, Ballindalloch, UK
Description:

Explore the newly upgraded spur path linking Ballindalloch with Glenlivet and Tomintoul. This 15 mile off shoot of the Speyside Way takes walkers off the main long distance route that follows the Spey to discover the higher and more rugged parts of Speyside.

Starting at Tomintoul, from the Campdalmore car park on the A939 (on the Grantown side of Tomintoul), the route crosses the Conglass river before climbing up to Carn Daimh, the highest point of the spur at 570m. Here you will get spectacular views across Glenlivet and the Braes towards Ben Avon and the Cairngorms. It then descends, crossing Blairfindy Moor before joining the public road, passing The Glenlivet Distillery and visitor centre. The route then crosses the River Livet, continuing over the Hill of Deskie before descending to Ballindalloch and Cragganmore where it joins the main Speyside Way path.

Following extensive improvements to the route in 2019 (through the Tomintoul & Glenlivet Landscape Partnership's Accessing the Landscape project), the path surface is greatly improved and walkers can now fully experience and enjoy the changing  landscapes and heritage of the area.
