Just like a modern day treasure hunt, we have proudly joined the geocaching revolution right in the heart of Aberdeenshire – in fact we're the only place in Scotland with an officially recognised Geotour.

The “Explore Royal Deeside Geotour” has 20 caches running along the Deeside Way from Drumoak to Ballater and up to Braemar, and is a fun and great way to explore the majestic area of Royal Deeside.

The Geotour trail will lead you through visitor hot spots including ancient forests, historic castles, vast estates and picturesque lochs. Some of the caches will link up easily to others in the area, if you are already an aficionado, you will know there are up to 300 to be found throughout the region.

For those keen on the adventure we have a special Explore Royal Deeside Passport with 40 blank boxes to be filled – get 40 and claim a Gold Coin. There is also an exclusive Geocoin available as a bonus to those staying, eating and shopping in the area.

In 2019 we will play host to the Aberdeenshire Mega – an event expected to welcome over 3,000 enthuasists to the region with a week-long celebration of events along with camping and entertainment. For more information about the event please visit
