Royal Deeside Walks

'The walks on offer range from those than can be undertaken by families with small children to those that require a high degree of expertise. For the latter it is worth remembering that Braemar has a fine Mountain Rescue centre which is sadly necessary as inexperienced walkers can easily get lost in the hills if bad weather sets in ...'

Starting from
Royal Deeside, North East Scotland, Aberdeenshire

'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.' Note theĀ Ballater Walking Festival.
