The Speyside Way

The Speyside Way is a beautiful cycle path, with lovely open views to the surrounding countryside. Aviemore to Loch Garten is an achievable distance for a day trip.

Speyside Way

START On the B970 near the Rothiemurchus Farm Shop

DISTANCE 9.5 miles one way

TIME 1 hour

PARKING Car Park on opposite side of the road from the farm shop

ROUTE CONDITIONS Mostly level gravel cycle path, with some sections of road

REFRESHMENTS Rothiemurchus Farm Shop & Barn

TOILETS Loch Garten



This is another route that you can go as far as you want, but our choice is to get all the way to RSPB Loch Garten. Again, this is entirely dependent on the children and if they want to cycle that for, or if they are OK in the trailer/child seat for that long.

You can park and start from the car park opposite the Rothiemurchus centre.

The route is absolutely stunning, with well maintained paths, changing to quiet roads as you near Loch Garten.

Tot Tips:

The Farm Shop is one of the best in the area, so we highly recommend a pit stop to pick up some goodies.
