Welcome to Donside & Deeside, Scotland

Aberdeenshire’s Royal Deeside has been well known to visitors since Queen Victoria and Prince Albert purchased a holiday home there 1852. The River Don roughly parallels the River Dee about ten miles to its north. 

Donside is a suburb of Aberdeen in Scotland, and is much wilder and more remote than Deeside, especially in its upper reaches, and this tour allows you to gain a flavour of both, travelling along Deeside to Ballater before heading north into the foothills of the Cairngorms to pick up the River Don and then following it downstream.
