A varied walk.
A bit dull walking from Spey Bay to the Garmouth bridge but then good views of the river and a surprisingly pleasant wander through Garmouth and Kingston then onto the dull again walk by the coast. I say dull as the walk sits below a pebble/stone/boulder beach so the sea is largely out of sight unless you scramble up the stones for a look. We intended to climb Binn Hill too but were unsure about venturing onto the firing range without being definite that there were no warning lights or flags on display. Didn't seem to be but the bullet battered warning sign was a bit off putting.

Pre-walk warm up at Sandend:
