We left Aberlour and headed south following the old railway track that would take us passed some old disused distilleries and then onto the station at Ballindalloch.
This disused Distillery at Carron is still well maintained even though it is no longer in use, serving as a reminder of Scottish history.
Following the route, we would have the river Spey on our right and then our left as we crossed the many bridges along the route.
Ballindaloch station, which is very well maintained too, though not in use.
You can camp here, which is a good place to stop and you can decide which route you would like to follow: carry on to Grantown-on-spey or take a detour to Tomintoul, over the spur.
We would carry on to Grantown, but people say the route to Timontoul is well worth doing.
Just a couple of reminders along the route of train speeds and disused track.
