Spirit of Speyside
Spirit of Speyside
  • Description
  • Related

As a salmon fishing river the Spey hardly needs any introduction. It speeds from hill to sea through Speyside passing tiny crofts and historic castles. Highland cattle and native sheep pepper the landscape and the Speyside Malt Whisky Trail trickles life into the area.

Rising from the vicinity of little Loch Spey, at more than 300m, south of the Corrieyairack Forest, 18 miles west of Newtonmore and 10 miles south of Fort Augustus, the power of the Spey begins. Running for just over 100 miles in length to Spey Bay on the coast, this most magnificent of salmon rivers diverts through heather hills, farmland and villages, skirting rocky outcrops, all the while swirling round and under a variety of picturesque bridges.

Visitors and locals alike embrace the beauty, natural environment and changes each season brings to Speyside and for Heidi Sands, capturing the spirit of Speyside on film for others to enjoy has been a privilege and a passion.

Born in rural Lancashire Heidi Sands has spent the last 20 years living and working on Speyside in north east Scotland. Her writing career took off in 1995. Contributing more than 300 illustrated articles to UK wide magazines with equine, rural or agricultural themes, she studied art and design, including photographic studies, at Preston Polytechnic and Blackpool and Fylde College in the 1980s. Farming in partnership with her husband, Heidiís interests include native ponies and fell walking in the Lake District.
