Walking in Moray

There are many reasons to visit Moray and Walking should certainly be high on your list if it is not already. For such a small county Moray packs way above it’s weight in terms of delivering sensational walking routes.

If you are staying at Blervie you are just 15 minutes walk from The Dava Way – a 30-mile route following an old railway line from Forres to Granton-on-Spey. This route is comparatively easy walking with beautiful bridges, the Divie Viaduct and open Moorland with only one tiny road to cross but does not have accommodation on route.

If you want to expand your routes you can then pick up The Speyside Way, one of four official long distance walks in Scotland. This route approximately 65 miles long follows the River Spey from Buckie to Ballindalloch with an additional spur to Tomintoul. Here you walk against a backdrop of fishermen in the fast moving Spey and the Cairngorm Mountains in the distance.

But Moray has another route for you called The Moray Coastal Trail, which meets the Dava in Forres and the Spey Way in Cullen – together these three routes make up The Moray Way. A distance of 45 miles along the stunning Moray coast, here the walking is straightforward but the scenery is stunning – you start of with forests and flat sandy beaches, then cliffs and fishing villages with increasingly dramatic cliffs.

If you do all three walks you will have done the Moray Way a 95-mile adventure – all three walks are uniquely different but all three offer a wonderful taste of Moray. There are lots of ways of combining stays or transferring luggage if you are staying along the route.

If walking is your interest then every June there is the Moray Outdoor Walking Festival – a 10-day itinerary of walks to suit everyone from whisky smuggling stories to wildlife watching and more.

And of course if you have bought your boots but do not fancy serious rambling there are many short scenic strolls you can take – take bite sized pieces of the above walks or take a short hike along Roseisle Beach which is fabulous at any time of the year, a walk along the River Findhorn at Sluie Walks or along to Randolph’s Leap is spectacular, the ancient Beech Woods in Grant Park or short stroll on the Dava from Blervie.

  1. Hey there! I understand this is sort of off-topic however
    I needed to ask. Does running a well-established blog such as yours
    take a massive amount work? I am completely new to writing a blog but I
    do write in my journal every day. I’d like to start a blog so I can easily share my
    own experience and views online. Please let me know if you have any recommendations
    or tips for new aspiring bloggers. Appreciate it!

    Is there any way you can remove people from that service?

    Cheers!
