Dunphail to Forres

The final stage of the Dava Way runs through a pleasant, pastoral landscape of woods and fields. Still following the old railway line it includes a long embankment giving good views before finally reaching the town of Forres, passing Dallas Dhu distillery.


Level walking on tracks and woodland paths along the line of an old railway. There is a signed diversion from the line at one point and there are also some muddy sections in cuttings.
