Self-guided walking tours from The Speyside Hotel

Walking in the quiet haven of nature and forestry.
It's summer time! Time to see the beautiful colors of the highland nature.
We invite our guests to have a relaxing day, exploring a multitude of lovely Woodland walk paths.
We, and the locals, recommend the following walks to our guests. Please talk with the hotel reception for more information.
Roads around are well sign-posted and most walk paths are available and safe for children.
Don’t forget your camera either if you are a professional photographer or for snapshots!

Grantown Museum continue to Castle Grant

An easy and pleasant stroll. Only two miles walking distance from the town, towards Castle Grant and with beautiful pastures along the way, you may find yourself lucky enough to spot a red squirrel or two, or perhaps some Highland cattle. On the way, Grantown-on-Spey boasts its museum, which holds events and galleries by local artists.

Anagach Woods

Beautiful pine woodlands and many different trails to choose from that weave and interconnect throughout the forest. Paths are well marked, colour-coded and each major entrance contains a map of the surrounding walks, parking is available.
You could try the river path and view the River Spey on the way where, with the right permit, you can spend time fishing.
All routes are suitable for walkers, cyclists and horses, safe for children and are a great place to walk your dogs. Please ensure no mess is left behind!

Viewpoint Walk, a.k.a. Dreggie

Dreggie, as it's known to the locals of Grantown, is best walked during a warm and sunny afternoon! It is shorter than Anagach, but is not for the feint-hearted.
Behind Grantown's caravan park and campsite, along our old abandoned railroad, lies a steep climb to the top, where a glorious view of the entire Cromdale hills can be seen. There are benches at several points along the ascent with equally stunning views.
