An illustrated and written description of each walk is available from the Visitor Centre (only £2 including post cards!)

Footpath updates:


Flooding at the Broomhill bridge end of the path is usual following heavy rain or when the Nethy & Spey are in spate.

However, its still worth a walk along the trail to see the rivers flowing fast and high!

Dippers and signs of otter are possible


The Alltmor footbridge is closed until further notice. To avoid the bridge, start your walk from Castle Roy car park

Castle Roy Loop

To complete both loops of this trail is not possible as the footbridge over Alltmor is not fit for purpose. Use of the bridge is at your own discretion. Please take care.

Riverside path

Flood damage on the River Nethy footpath network. TAKE CARE folks!

Flood damage on the River Nethy in 2015 – now fully repaired.

Storm damage in late December 2015 washed out a section of the path but it is now fully repaied and accessible for all users including motorised wheelchairs, prams, push chairs and bikes

Updates will be posted on this website, Nethy Bridge Community and RSPB Community Ranger  facebook pages
