Deeside Trail


The Deeside Trail is a 225km (140 miles) circular MTB starting in Banchory, linking up some of the best trails and scenery in Aberdeenshire, Deeside and the Eastern Cairngorm mountains. Roughly 15% paved, 30% singletrack and 55% doubletrack.

The true route is really the long route but the section from White Bridge to Derry Lodge is pretty long and rough so can take 3-4 hrs on its own, probably longer if the ground is wet. Anyone who needs to do the route in two days is recommended to take the regular route. If you want a challenge, don’t mind a lot of bog and aren’t pressed for time then go for the long route.
