The Spey changes its course very frequently, either gradually as a result of deposition and erosion from normal flow, or in a matter of hours as a result of going into spate (spate - very fast flood, flash flood). The Spey spates very quickly due to its wide catchment area in the mountains, as a result of rainfall or snow-melt.
