Aberdeenshire Cycle Routes
The Formartine and Buchan Way was once a railway line that linked Abderdeen with Fraserburgh and Peterhead. When the railway was shut down in the 1970s the trackbed was developed into a shared cycle and walking path.
This is 53 miles of flat, traffic-free cycling in North East Scotland with plenty to see and do along the way.

One of the most spectacular bike rides of my life was on a road called 'The Lord's Throat' during a snow storm.
I travelled to the Aberdeenshire town of Alford where you can take a ride on a narrow gauge railway and visit the Grampian Transport Museum.
This route also includes castles and a stone circle.
