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