Slow Ways linking Nairn and Cawdor, Forres, Grantown-on-Spey, Inverness

Help connect Nairn

Many Slow Ways have several route options. Some will be better than others, or good for different reasons.

Our goal is for each Slow Way to have at least one route that is verified and surveyed. To be verified – and get its snail badge – a route needs at least three positive reviews.

Give a hike and help get a for every one of Nairn’s Slow Ways.
