The Keith and Dufftown Railway is an eleven mile line linking the World's Malt Whisky Capital, Dufftown, to the market town of Keith. The line, which was reopened by volunteers during 2000 and 2001, passes through some of Scotland's most picturesque scenery, with forest and farmland, lochs and glens, castles and distilleries. The area's abundant wildlife can be glimpsed from the train, including deer, foxes, buzzards, heron, and much more. Scheduled Services on Saturdays and Sunday in April, May and September and Fridays too in June, July and August.

Speyside

The River Spey is Scotland's second longest river. The upper part, Strathspey, is equally famous for its hiking, skiing and watersports. The lower part of the valley comprises the famous Malt whisky trail. There are more malt whisky distilleries in this small area than in any other part of the country, including Glenlivet and Glenfiddich. There is some fine walking along the 45-mile Speyside Way, which runs from Spey Bay south to Tomintoul. At the mouth of the Spey you find the Whale and Dolphin Conservation Society wildlife centre set on a 450 hectare nature reserve.
