'Royal Deeside is a walker's paradise. A full description of all the walks on offer would require a substantial document. Numerous books are available and the Upper Deeside Access Trust (UDAT) [now evolved into the Outdoor Access Trust for Scotland] publishes very attractive maps detailing some of the easier walks and cycle rides that start at Braemar and Ballater.'
