On the map this looks like a boring straight line; but in fact nowhere is it straight for more than 100 metres. Part of the Speyside Way, it has been well planned and laid out. It's wide and well surfaced (but good shoes, or boots, recommended). It's full of variety and offers good views to the northern Cairngorms. The walk is 5.5 miles from one railway station to the other, to take advantage of a return journey on the steam train; it can be shortened to four miles if you use two cars. Food, drink etc are available in the two villages and there is a licensed diner on the train (timetables available at the Tourist Information Centre, any hotel, guesthouse etc).
