Aberdeenshire Coastal Trail

Location: Aberdeenshire

24 hours


Visit the Aberdeenshire Coastal Trail to explore 165 miles of continuous pathway along a dramatic shoreline.

This stretch of the north-eastern Scottish coast is a sequence of spectacular cliffs, pretty coves, empty beaches and old fishing towns.

You may be able to spot seabirds and waterfowl, dolphins and seals. Really lucky viewers might see a whale.

Walking the whole of the Aberdeenshire coastal trail takes several days but the less energetic can tackle just a small part of it.

Visit the Aberdeenshire Council website to download detailed free maps of the way-marked route, which runs from the county border near Portsoy down to St Cyrus in the south.
