The woodland trail

The woodland trail at Delliefure has been created to encourage visitors to step into the great outdoors and encounter the natural beauty of Strathspey.

The trail is guided by a series of red-topped way-markers, edging the open grassland glade before swinging back uphill through mature birch woods.

The seat at the viewpoint above the escarpment provides an engaging place to rest perhaps, while others continue on to an adventurous downhill track to the secluded valley floor of the Delliefure Burn. The trail then rises uphill again to re-join the path and reunite with others.

Come and explore

The trail explores a terrain of wide-open spaces, intimate woodland dells, expansive river views, escarpment edges and a beautiful babbling burn in secluded glades.

Wildlife here is world-class. It has been laid out so that people of different abilities can enjoy the trail.

There are stopping points where the less energetic can rest while others hike on to complete the trail, climbing hills, scrambling down banks and hopping across streams.

​Please take care, watch out for steep slopes, report any hazards and treat the burial ground areas with respect.


The woodland trail has been laid out to be accessible to people of different abilities.

The first 250m of surfaced track alongside the open glades and should be accessible to wheelchairs and provides a place to rest at the far end.

Beyond this, a grass path takes walkers through woodland, across riverside views to a viewpoint at the northern escarpment. The more adventurous can then scramble down banks, hop streams and explore the valley below.

​The walk offers a real diversity of terrain and wildlife habitats with riverside vistas.
