River Findhorn - A Walk on the Wild Side

This popular walk, new in 2016, follows the west bank of the River Findhorn. It is one of the most stunning but least well known of all the walks in Moray. Hidden sections with the best views of the river and cliffs had not been walked for many years. Come and explore the high cliffs and waterside tracks to discover the 'wild side'. At Daltullich Bridge we follow the better known pathways to Randolph's Leap and the café back at Logie Steading.
You will be taken from Logie Steading to the start at Newton of Dalvey (NJ007577). There are no big hills, but there are short steep sections, some muddy parts and some very uneven ground. Many sections are forest tracks and fairly easy underfoot.
The River Findhorn is famed for the beautiful rocky gorges it squeezes through, with deep pools and rapids framed by mature trees. Any one of the views would be worth the walk to see, but amazingly there is another around every corner. Don't forget your camera, and come and explore one of Scotland's secrets.
