THE MORAY WAY AND THE DAVA WAY MORAY HIKE GPX

The Moray Way makes use of the Dava Way and parts of the Moray Coast Trail and Speyside Way to form a varied 95 mile circular route.

The route takes the walker along the beautiful Moray Firth coast line with its sandy bays and rocky cliffs to Spey bay, then inland along Strath Spey past world famous distilleries and food producers to Grantown, where the final stretch follows the old Highland Railway route over Dava Moor back to Forres and the coast.

For those looking for a cycle holiday then the Dava Way can be cycled in its entirety on mountain bikes when the conditions are wet it ca become rough and muddy in several places.

The Dava Way is one of Scotland's Great Trails, it is a path linking the towns of Forres and Grantown on Spey.

The total distance is 24 miles of which is through open countryside, most of the route follows the old Highland Railway line.

Almost all of the route follows the old Highland Railway line and is off road and safe from traffic. From the Moray Firth this unusually varied railway walk winds its way from sea level up to Dava summit at 320 metres before descending into Strathspey.

 Along its length it passes through a pleasant mix of farmland, woodland and moorland, this makes path one of the best long distance walking paths or off road cycling routes in Scotland, it provides an important link between the Speyside Way in the south and the Moray Firth Trail to the north, on a clear day as you cross Dava moor with views to the north over the shire counties of Nairn, Inverness, Moray, Ross & Cromarty, and Sutherland whilst to the south the Cromdale Hills and the Cairngorm Mountains dominate the skyline.

The surface is varied, mostly firm and good, but it can be wet and rough in places. All of it is fine for walking, with two way self closing gates.

 The path is managed and maintained entirely by volunteers. There is no system to clear or collect rubbish. Please help to keep the route clear of litter by clearing up after your picnics and taking any rubbish home with you.
