Title: Camping along the Way
Post by: GrahamS on January 22, 2010, 11:52:48 am
We are planning to walk the Speyside Way in April (walking south), camping only, with, hopefully, some wild camping along the way. Can anyone recommend suitable places to rest up? Our initial thoughts are perhaps a 5 day walk with stops around Boat O’Brig, Ballindalloch (2 nights?), Grantown On Spey but I guess we can be fairly flexible depending on weather, energy levels and perhaps the chance of a warm shower somewhere! We may be able to stretch to 6 days, but are hoping an average of 15-17 miles per day is manageable. Any thoughts or recommendations would be very much appreciated.

Additionally, can anyone advise on the best way to walk the Tomintoul Spur, should we walk from Ballindalloch to Tomintoul or the other way? Or does it matter? It would also help if someone can recommend a local taxi service that can do the return trip to Ballindalloch or Tomintoul?
Thanks in advance
Graham

I guess we will just have to wing it!

Thanks for looking anyway.

Hi Graham.

Did you manage to wild camp along the Speyside Way ?
Have just finished The Great Glen Way a few weeks ago and hope to walk the Speyside Way next year.
