Footpath Network

There is a well-established and maintained network of paths in and around the village, from short strolls on all abilities trails close to the Community Centre to longer walks through the lovely pine woods nearby. The paths are generally low level with minimal gradients and range from 1.5 miles/2.5 km to 5 miles/8 km in length. Each path is waymarked with its own symbol and colour for easy route finding.

The trails include:

  • The Riverside Trail – sponsored by Nethy Bridge Stores
  • The Riverside Link Path – sponsored by Abernethy Bunkhouse, Nethy Station
  • The Wilderness Trail – sponsored by Balnagowan Mill Holiday Cottage
  • The Puggy Line Trail – sponsored by the Mountview Hotel
  • The Broomhill Trail – sponsored by Balliefurth Farm
  • The Castle Roy Loop – sponsored by the Nethy Bridge Hotel
  • The King’s Road – sponsored by Nethy Bridge Community Centre
  • The Backharn Trail – sponsorship vacancy
  • The Lettoch Walk – sponsorsed by The Lazy Duck Eco-homestead and Huts

A Trails Pack with illustrated and written descriptions of each walk is available from the Visitor Centre (only £2 including post cards!).

Footpath updates:

Broomhill
Flooding at the Broomhill bridge end of the path is usual following heavy rain or when the Nethy and Spey are in spate. However, it’s still worth a walk along the trail to see the rivers flowing fast and high!

Look out for dippers and signs of otter.

Bacharn
The Allt Mor 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 advised as the footbridge over the Allt Mor is closed. Use of the bridge is at your own discretion. Please take care.
