The Route.

Also known as the Old Deeside Line in Aberdeen begin at the Polmuir Road entrance to Duthie Park joining the path behind the glass enclosed Winter Gardens. Head west through the suburbs of Aberdeen to arrive at Peterculter. Follow the path through Peterculter and pick up the old line again near the old Peterculter Station. After a short distance leave the old line again and join the quiet country road at Coalford heading towards Dalmaik where you leave the road  and follow the path until you reach the access road to  the playing fields. Follow the access road to where it joins the public road with the path beside it and on into Drumoak. You can catch a ‘bus here back into Aberdeen or carry on along the Deeside Way to Banchory and beyond.
