The old railway bridge to Ballindalloch on the popular Speyside Way long distance path is currently closed for repair. It is expected that works on the bridge will continue until June 1st. There is no official or signed detour available, and avoiding the bridge would add many miles of roadwalking as well as omitting Ballindalloch from the route.
A free taxi service is being provided by Moray Council, enabling walkers to leave the way at Blacksboat old station car park and rejoin it at Ballindalloch. The service will be available from 9am to 8pm daily whilst the bridge is closed. Arrangements should be made with one of the following companies, quoting ‘Ballindalloch Bridge Closure’:
