Royal Deeside

Destination this morning was southbound to St Andrews for a few days. Went out to the coast at Montrose and it was so lovely we drove north for a bit first. Stopped on the harbour at Stonehaven to make lunch and a quick check of the map – realised we were almost in Aberdeen.

So decided on Royal Deeside for a few days as were so close anyway. Headed inland to Banchory and the cc site. As always very clean, fabulous showers and enormous hard standing pitches. There is a cycle track called the Deesideway from here to Aberdeen in one direction, 20 odd miles and the other way its 42 miles to Braemar – apparently we are trying it tomorrow god help us!

Just been for a walk into Banchory, we thought it was 2 minutes from the site – no – its 2 miles. So the legs are well and truly stretched after that little hike. Typical little Scottish town with mainly old fashioned independent shops which sell everything you can think of. Walked down to the River Dee but no signs of any royals fly fishing today.
