How Geocaching Works
Use of geocaching.com services is subject to the terms and conditions in our disclaimer
Welcome to the Explore Royal Deeside GeoTour with the chance to earn a trackable geocoin by finding 20 special caches hidden among dozens of caches in mini trails around castles and lochs, in forests and glens, and along the Deeside Way. To be eligible for one of the gold or silver geocoins you must collect a codeword from each cache, and earn bonus points. Full details are on the GeoTour Passport, which you can download here. The Explore Royal Deeside GeoTour stretches from Drumoak in the east to Braemar in the west. An area steeped in history with spectacular scenery, threaded by the River Dee.
The Deeside Railway is still 'live' along this section. Seasonally at least. For about a mile. With both diesel engines and the steam loco "Bon Accord". Thanks to the stalwart efforts of the Royal Deeside Railway Preservation Society: http://www.deeside-railway.co.uk/
At the Milton of Crathes, there is a Victorian station, a railway carriage tearoom, ice creams etc.
