Glenlivet is an area of outstanding natural beauty, its rolling hills and river valleys offering endless walking opportunities. The Speyside Way has a separate spur which branches off at Ballindalloch into the Glenlivet hills and over to Tomintoul, the highest village in the Highlands.

Tomintoul is home to the Glenlivet Crown Estate office and visitor information centre, and the estate offers a wide network of interconnected waymarked paths throughout the area, some of which might be offered as guided walks during the Moray Walking Festival.

There are small shops, restaurants, galleries and a famous whisky shop, The Whisky Castle, in Tomintoul and a small village shop in the hamlet of Tomnavoulin.

This part of Moray is now also part of the Cairngorms National Park, which extends through the mountains to Royal Deeside, the Angus Glens, Highland Perthshire and the Aviemore and Strathspey area.
