Formartine & Buchan Way

The Formartine & Buchan Way uses the former railway line linking from Dyce, on the edge of Aberdeen in the south, to the village of Maud where it splits into two routes; eastwards to Peterhead and northwards to Fraserburgh.

The route is an impressive 53 miles / 85 km in length, is entirely on gravel and relatively flat, however it passes through such a varied and interesting landscape that the outlook is constantly changing and the journey never boring.

The F&B Way as it is often called, passes through or close to many place of interest including Aden Country Park, Drinnies Wood Observatory, Strichen Stone Circle and Deer Abbey. These all make interesting detours, or destinations for a coffee stop.
