A lovely walk for all ages. Different parts to stop and look at the view between Duthie Park and Peterculter. Great for cycling too.

This public walkway has been improved so much over the years with the formation of new bridges and tarring the surface itself. Now it accesses the world famous Duthie Park and stretches all the way to Peterculter and beyond. Easy to walk or cycle. Lots...More

Hi, Probably best to park at Bellfield and take a short walk to the line. It's central, off Dee Street. Hope that helps, Enjoy
