About the Spey
One of the largest rivers in Scotland, from its source Loch Spey, it flows 97 miles
to Moray Firth, emptying between Banff and Elgin. The total catchment area is 1,154
sq miles. The Spey is an alpine river, with melting snow supplementing flow well
into spring. The waters are low in nutrients, and have remained fairly free from
pollution. The main river is also relatively free from obstructions. Historically,
one of the great salmon rivers, net fishing ceased at the end of the 1993 season,
and there is now no commercial netting for salmon within the Spey district.
