Boat of Garten to Aviemore

The penultimate section of the Speyside Way provides variety and mountain views and the bright lights of Aviemore. It can easily be done as a day walk combined with a trip on the steam train of the Strathspey Railway.


Clear path, minor road (no pavement), then paths and stony tracks, suitable for some off-road baby buggies. Most of the route is shared with the Sustrans cycle route.

Public Transport

Aviemore has excellent tranport links by bus and train. Boat of Garten is also served by bus, and both ends of the walk are linked by the Strathspey Steam Railway.
