The Dufftown Spur and the Tomintoul Spur - The Speyside Way includes two spurs. The above itinerary is our most popular, and includes the Dufftown Spur, but does not include the Tomintoul Spur. This itinerary can be adapted to suit you.
The Dufftown Spur can be omitted, with just one night spent in Craigellachie instead of two.
As the walk to Dufftown is quite short, so why not include a short guided walking tour of Dufftown and its distilleries? Includes tastings at all of the distilleries, and fascinating details about local history and culture? Details Here Or just get in touch with us to book.
The Tomintoul Spur is from Ballindalloch to Tomintoul, the highest village in the Scottish highlands. The walk is mostly uphill, including the summit of Cairn Daimh (569 metres, 1,800 feet), and takes in some wild scenery with great open views to the Caringorms. It can be done either in one stage or two stages.
To walk the spur in one stage, the distance is 15 miles, or 24 kilometres. We have you collected from Tomintoul and transferred back to Ballindalloch for a second night.
To walk the spur in two stages, you walk the first stage to Glenlivet Distillery (where you can spend some time visiting the distillery). This is approximately 7 miles (11k). From there we transfer you to Ballindalloch and back the next morning to complete the remaining 11 miles (18k) to Tomintoul, from where we transfer you back to Ballndalloch for a third night.
