Welcome to the Explore Royal Deeside GeoTour Let your GPS guide you on an adventure around majestic scenery and hidden gems. Special geocaches have been hidden at 20 sites across Royal Deeside through forest trails, around lochs and at breathtaking viewpoints. There are GeoCoin prizes for cachers who collect 15 or more codewords or business stamps. Earn your coins by collecting codewords and/or stamps from participating local businesses. When you visit a participating business, just ask to have your passport stamped.
The Deeside Way largely follows the route of the Old Royal Deeside Railway from Aberdeen to Ballater. The path is suitable for walkers and cyclists with many sections suitable for horses as well. The majority of the route is suitable for child buggies and wheelchairs can access to within a few metres of all caches. Further details on the Deeside Way can be found at www.deesideway.org The route is waymarked using the following logo -
