“This section is quite flat mostly following the railway through the River Spey valley.”— Lost Justpastnowhere
The Aviemore to Kincraig segment mostly follows the active railway line and as a result it's very flat except for one or two short climbs. Much of the route is over crushed gravel, although the southern portion uses some earthen doubletracks. Much of this segment passes through pastoral farmland, but there are sections of birch forest and views of the River Spey as you near Kincraig. This segment passes through the Cairngorms National Park and is nestled within the Grampian Mountains.
In Kincraig, you can pick up the next segment of the Speyside Way (once it is completed) or take the more challenging East Highland Way all the way to Fort William.
