The Deeside Way – 41 miles – 4 Days – Aberdeen to Ballater. The River Dee’s name means “Goddess” – what better way to honour her, than to walk by her side? From the great granite city of Aberdeen, to the heart of the Cairngorms, this pilgrimage brings a feast for all the senses – including stunning views, delicate winter gardens, ancient ruined churches, castles, and waterfalls. Wander through the valleys between snow-capped peaks, and discover the many secrets sheltering below the crags. Remember to cast an offering of silver or song into the waters; bringing your presence here into accord with holy traditions reaching back over two-thousand years.
