River Spey and woodland walk, Boat of Garten

This very pleasant circuit from Boat of Garten follows the River Spey and then heading inland through delightful woodland bursting with widlife. These special woods are home to the rare capercaillie, and dogs should be kept on a short lead during the very sensitive breeding season between 1 April and 15 August.


Grassy tracks and woodland paths.
