Speyside Way Adventure

The Speyside Way Adventure takes you by Bike, canoe and on foot from the Cairngorms National Park through salmon fishing and malt whisky country to the North sea. Meandering through beautifully forested countryside passing many famous distilleries such as Knockando & Cardhu. With time on our side, we will pay a visit to at least one of them for a “wee dram”. The Spey is Britain’s premiere salmon fishing rivers with an abundance of wildlife around its banks. The highlight however will surely be in its many fun & exciting Grade II rapids or its tranquil end at Spey Bay spotting dolphins.
