Speybridge House
Speybridge House
The house at the end of the Old Spey Bridge is not on the first edition of the Ordnance Survey six-inch map, but it is marked and named as Viewhill on the second edition, so it must have been built in the late 19th century. The current online maps show it as a hotel, but the sign at the gate says Speybridge House, and there is no mention of a hotel. The bridge dates from 1754, though the northernmost of its three arches had to be rebuilt after damage in the great floods on 1829. The Speyside Way crosses the River Spey on this bridge, which is now closed to motor vehicles.
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official Speyside Way web site at LinkExternal link has more information, not all of it accurate and some of it getting out of date.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!
