This travelling couple also enjoy walking and visiting historic sites and will be making the most of the local attractions during their stay here. You could disembark the Aberdeen Inverness line at Forres or Nairn but without buses this would involve a 30 to 40 minute Taxi run. From Ballindalloch the river offers a variety of Grade II rapids. It is situated in the heart of Speyside, near to the famed local malt whisky distilleries of Cragganmore, Glenlivet, Glenfarclas and Glenfiddich.

No fewer than 18 hotels were counted in the town inthe number is probably not much smaller today. Running parallel with the river at this point, and on downstream to Spey Bay, is the Speyside Way. Speyside is geographically part of the Highlands but is considered a separate region because of its size and the different characteristics of Speyside whisky as opposed to other Highland whisky. From Ballindalloch the river offers a variety of Grade II rapids.

This is built into the hillside beside and below the main road and offers much better car and coach parking as well as a spacious shop, cafe, audio-visual displays and a superb model showing the castle in earlier, less ruinous days. Situated halfway between the Cairngorm and Lecht ski areas, the town is surrounded by ancient woodlands with a unique habitat for a wide variety of wildlife. Speyside is the undisputed centre for malt whisky in Scotland when it comes to the number of distilleries located in a single area. They were soon to acquire the power and position of Highland Chiefs, founding in turn the septs of Allan, through Sir Allan Grant of Auchernick, and Thomas, through his brother. His name was among those on the first Bill of Punishment, but was later removed and the Chief had his estates returned. With the Grantown show only a week away we are looking forward to welcoming back the strathisla pipe band.
