    The often grass-covered Speyside Way loosely follows the River Spey on the bed of an old railway line, making for flat, easy miles through the Moray countryside in North-East Scotland.The coolest thing about the Speyside Way is that many of the old platforms and stations are still in place. You can choo-choo on through just as the trains would have done once upon time.Many stations have been restored to their original glory and are now houses or quaint cafés. If you’re after something a little stronger than tea or coffee, you could always detour to one of the many whiskey distilleries nearby that put this area on the map for a wee dram.As you leave the Speyside Way, continue on along the beautiful Aberdeenshire coastline, through the cute town of Portknockie with some great views over the water, and finish up the run route at Cullen Bay. Here you'll find a stunning crescent moon of sand that sweeps out into the North Sea.You'll likely want to split this run up over a few days, or choose a single section of it if time is short.
