 Banchory Crathes Deeside Way Railway train diesel Scotland summer Aberdeenshire taken near this busy and large Deeside town on the River Dee some 18 miles west of Aberdeen in North East Scotland. This view is taken by the North Deeside Road from Aberdeen to Braemar adjacent to Crathes Castle. Scolty Hill with its memorial tower is a distinctive landscape pointer to the town and can be seen along this stretch of restored railway line which runs from Crathes, just opposite to the main entrance to Crathes Castle, an important National Trust for Scotland property in North East Scotland. The line stops at the outskirts of Banchory on its eastern face although prior to the Beeching cuts the line ran from Aberdeen west along the River Dee to its terminus at Ballater. Large parts of the disused railway line have now been incorporated in a walking and cycling path called the Deeside Way and offer the enthusiastic rambler a substantial dedicated route from Aberdeen to Ballater.
