Take the scenic mountain road from Deeside to reach Speyside. This area is famous for one thing: Whisky. There are many distilleries in the area, all offering tours and tastings. The 70 mile ‘malt whisky trail’ takes in eight distilleries and can be completed by car or tour. Alternatively, sections of the trail can be done on foot or by bike.
The beautiful waters of the River Spey are not just perfect for whisky producing; this is also a popular angling area due to the quantities of salmon in the river and the pleasant surroundings.
