The Deeside Way

First Edition

The Deeside Way is a long-distance path running for 66km (41 miles) from Aberdeen, the oil capital of Europe, to Ballater in Royal Deeside in the Cairngorms National Park. Mainly following the course of old Royal Deeside Railway line, it is suitable for cyclists as well as walkers. There is much to be seen along the Way of scenic beauty, historical interest and thriving wildlife.

There are fascinating links to the Romans, to Queen Victoria and Balmoral and even to bodysnatchers! This new Guide covers all of these, with a wealth of practical information on preparation for the walk, accommodation, transport and much else. As well as describing the Way itself, Peter Evans includes six additional walks in and around Deeside, varying from short low-level walks to mountain summits.

Peter Evans is an experienced writer and hillwalker with an extensive knowledge of the area covered in this book and its history. A former editor of The Great Outdoors, Climber and Scottish Field magazines, he was a journalist with Scotland on Sunday for many years. He has written two previous walking books, Walk of the Week 1 and 2. He lives in Inverness.
