Geo-Trips :: Spey Bay Circular


A walk from Tugnet, Wed, 10 Nov 2021 by Anne Burgess

After following the route of the Speyide Way from Tugnet to Portgordon, we intended to return by the beach, but were foiled because the tide was too high for us to cross the Burn of Tynet, so we had to detour back to the Speyside Way before crossing the Spey Bay golf course and following the path alongside the beach to return to Tugnet.
