Some of the new houses seen from the route of the Speyside Way LinkExternal link on Kinchurdy Road.
Speyside Way

The Speyside Way is a long-distance path linking Buckie on the Moray Coast to Aviemore in Strathspey.
The official Speyside Way web site at LinkExternal link has more information, not all of it accurate and some of it getting out of date.
Beware a similar-sounding unofficial web site ending in .org that contains inaccurate information but tends to come up in search engines well ahead of the official one!

Boat of Garten

Boat of Garten (Scottish Gaelic: Coit a' Ghartain; originally: Garten) is a small village situated on the fringe of the Abernethy Forest National Nature Reserve between Aviemore and Grantown-on-Spey in the Scottish Highlands.

The village derives its name from the nearby old ferry over the River Spey which was replaced by a wooden trestle bridge in 1899. This was itself superseded by the present concrete bridge (NH9419 : Garten Bridge). The village is also promoted as "The Osprey Village" (LinkExternal link Boat of Garten .com) in reference to the nearby RSPB reserve at Loch Garten, approximately 1 mile to the east, which is home to a significant population of Ospreys
