Super Sunny Cycling Saturday
Amazing weather in Aberdeenshire this weekend...22 degrees and beautiful blue sky, perfect for a wee cycle along the Deeside Way.
The Deeside Way runs from near the centre of Aberdeen, oil capital of Europe, to Ballater, in the Cairngorms National Park, famous for it’s Victorian Heritage and links to Balmoral Castle.
The path is suitable for walkers and cyclists and is Route 195 of the National Cycle Network.
The route follows the line of the Old Royal Deeside Railway from Aberdeen to Banchory, through woodland and farmland to Kincardine O’Neil and then re-joins the old line from Aboyne to Ballater, total distance 41 miles.
Along the way there are many opportunities to see remains of the old railway infrastructure as well as stunning views over the River Dee with the Cairngorm Mountains as a backdrop.
The Deeside Way offers the opportunity to explore a beautiful area of Aberdeenshire with its changing landscape from sea to mountains.
