As you like it! ….
Our featured runs only touch the surface of what’s available. Would you like to start a run from the front door of your accommodation? Or is there a particular place you’d like to run to? We can see if we can programme a run to suit you at a comparable price to our featured runs (we may ask for a guaranteed number of runners or ask for a little bit more for a private tour).
Our “even more runs” section will give you some ideas as our programmed runs only touch the surface of the terrain we know. How about a run following a smuggler’s road onto the hills, or taking the train to run through Strathspey experiencing the changing landscapes; past old barracks, through ancient pinewoods and beside the famous Lochan An Eilean.
Even More Runs! – Ideas
Ben Aigen Blast – 8 or 12k/1-1.5hrs A wee hill with a grand view! Rising above the north end of Speyside we’ll climb up on forestry tracks with the option for something rougher on the way and then break free of the trees to make the final attempt on the summit. The trig point gives great views north over the Moray Firth and south towards Ben Rinnes. And it’s now either time for a straightforward return or the chance for a longer descent, steeper blast down the backside of the hill, joining the Speyside Way to contour back around the hill.
A coastal tour – Portsoy to Findochty 18k/3-4hrs The Moray Firth provides the backdrop to this fabulous coastal run along some of the best sections of the Moray Coastal Path. We will use the quick bus service to make the most of this linear run. Enroute we’ll pass castles, hidden beaches, geological WONDERS and there’s always the chance of spotting dolphins or seals on the way.
Into the heart of the Cairngorms (Glenmore into the Lairig Ghru). Starting from Glenmore this adventure takes you into the heart of the Cairngorms via the deep ravines of the Chalamain Gap and the Lairig Ghru. Scramble over rocky terrain deep in the mountains and experience fast flowing running on the trails of Glenmore forest.
