At the end of the East Highland Way. And the start of the Speyside Way.

Published 11 February 2018

Stood next to the Speyside Way information board in Aviemore, at the end of the East Highland Way

The East Highland Way links with the West Highland Way in Fort William. The start of one coincides with the end of another.

The same is true at the East Highland Way’s terminus in Aviemore too. Not that it connects with the West Highland Way again. That would be impossible. But it does connect with another Scottish trail. And that’s the Speyside Way.

Alas, in Aviemore, there’s no impressive sculpture to set you off/welcome you at the end of your journey. In fact the start of the Speyside Way is marked only by an interpretation board showing a route map. Equally that means there’s not much to celebrate with at the end of the East Highland Way (although that’s not massively surprising given the trail exists in book form only.)

Mind you, there is a toilet block next to the sign, and the block even has public showers. So it’s not all bad, I’m sure you’ll agree.
