The Speyside Way, Buckie to Fochabers

The Speyside way is 65 miles long and goes from Buckie, Scotland to Aviemore and the views and walk are fantastic, it is also along the distillery path, so plenty of whiskey tasting!
We stayed at Elgin before making our way to Buckie and travelling south to reach Fochabers in good time, a distance of just over 10 miles and the route follows the spey  river and it is well marked and the Scots are very warm, friendly people.

 With such glorious weather for scotland, The Speyside river looks tremendous.
 The R.A.F are always out and this is flightpath learning school!

 Elgin Abbey, I believe.
 Oil Rigs are towed back and forth to be mended and you can watch them come in and out of the shores.

Fochabers, the home of the Baxters soup and goodie shop!
Take a tour around the museum and see how Baxters was formed and then try and eat their 1" thick large plate sized pancake with plenty of toppings to try, you`d be mad not to!
