The Highlander has an enormous whisky collection and is well worth a visit if you are passing through.
From here, the walk follows the Speyside Way 2 miles to Aberlour - home of Aberlour distillery. Again, well worth a visit but be warned that the chances of finishing the walk after a tour of the still are slim. The tour takes over two hours and finishes with 5 drams - it's a real education!

From Aberlour we headed up the hill and over what is locally known as The Gownie. This is an old Scottish Rights of Way route and is well signposted. You get some brilliant views back down the Spey Valley from here and across to Macallan distillery. The track takes you through some thickly populated spruce plantations and over into the next glen where you arrive in what many people regard as the malt whisky capital of the world.
