We really enjoyed this walk! Caught in between some showers of rain but it was still very pleasant and the scenery was beautiful. Look forward to going back on a summers day

Walked from Cults to Newton Dee along the old railway path. Even on a damp day it was a pleasant walk with nice views, lots of trees, and a bit of history. Worth a wander
