You may not realise it, but May is #NationalWalkingMonth and now the evenings are lighter for longer, this makes it the perfect time to get outside and get walking – so why not explore your local area by foot?
Did you know that Chapelton has its very own walking trail? You can follow a one hour marked walk through diverse scenery and wildlife habitats. It has been designed to allow families to get outside and offer access to some of Aberdeenshire's most scenic spots overlooking the North East coastline.
And, with Stonehaven harbour on your doorstep you are spoiled for choice with an array of walking routes and local attractions to visit nearby.
Stonehaven harbour is a delightful fishing area with twenty miles of bird watching coastline. From Stonehaven, you can walk to Dunnottar Castle via the Stonehaven Coastal trail. Surrounded by sheer cliffs and water, Dunnottar Castle holds one of the most spectacular positions of Scotland’s castles. With the waves of the North Sea crashing into the shore and below, it is a thrilling and photogenic walk for all.
Situated on the southern side of Stonehaven lies Dunnottar Woods which are perfect for a family stroll or dog walk. Dunnottar’s mix of trees, glades and winding paths make it a real playground for Stonehaven. The park is a haven for red squirrels, roe deer and dippers. It can be a fun day out for the full family as the woods are full of surprises and stories about the Kennedy family who once lived in Dunnottar House. Walk directly into the woodland from the town and quickly lose yourself in history and nature.
