I have never done a long distance walk before, but I love walking so that part is fine. We are staying in hotels, not camping. But still, I am freaking out! My bag is tiny. I have no idea how I am going to pull this off.
Oh wait, I know. There are like a dozen distilleries to visit along the way. And several pubs, which is why this is also known as a “whisky trail,” and which is why I want to walk this trail versus all the others. I heard about the Speyside Way more than a decade years ago and this dream is finally coming true.
In the car, when we pass walkers in the rain I think, “Ha! You’re stupid and I’m warm and dry!” And starting tomorrow, I’ll be one of those stupid wet people.
If you were to walk straight through you could do it in 4-5 days, but we will want to stop at the distilleries and other points of interest. It should take about a week, give or take.
Am I crazy? Would you ever do this?
