    This stage takes you into ancient forests that occasionally give way to afford stunning views over the landscape.

    You follow minor roads from Craigellachie and then climb over the shoulder of Ben Aigen through the Wood of Arndilly.

    At a high point in the woodland, you reach a pleasant rest area with wonderful views over the Spey flowing through the patchwork landscape below.

    The trail then descends through trees into and farmland and eventually reaches Boat o' Brig, the site of an ancient ferry across the River Spey.

    A short but sharp ascent through trees follows and then you descend gradually through farmland and woodland, roughly following the course of the Spey to Fochabers, where this stage finishes.

    Fochabers has some accommodation options and has plenty of choices for food and drink.
