Buckie to Fochabers

The first stage of the Speyside Way is very varied, with a walk past old Buckpool harbour and along the coastline to Portgordon followed by an old-railway line and woodland stretch to reach the beautiful mouth of the Spey. The route then heads inland on tracks through woods and fields, with the mighty Spey never far away, before ending in the very fine small town of Fochabers.


Coastal path with some pavement sections, then tracks and paths through woods and fields. Some sections can flood resulting in temporary diversions; short sections can be wet.

Public Transport

Buckie and Fochabers are both well served by buses.
