The Picts believed these waters to be sacred and the home of water spirits
The walk to Birkenbush Woods via the Linn o Ruthrie, follows a three mile (4.5km) ancient route that begins and ends at the Speyside Visitor Centre.
The walk is over generally level terrain with a short
but steep ascent to the woods beyond the Linn o Ruthrie. This walk usually takes up to 3 hours with rests, etc.
Following the course of the Lour burn from it's junction with the River Spey, you
will pass by the auld Krk o Skirdustan and the medieval packhorse Bridge before passing by Aberlour Distillery as you approach the magical Linn o Ruthrie.
Enjoy the solitude and tranquility of
the Birkenbush Wood with its abundance of wildlife, squirrel, roe deer, fox and the elusive pine marten before returning to the village by way of the Shean or Fairy Knowe, where Hatton the fairmer spent a year and a day with the wee folk who lived there.
