Aboyne Paths and Tracks Group

Aboyne Paths and Tracks Group (APTG) is run by local volunteers with the aim of maintaining, developing and promoting Mid Deeside’s paths and tracks. We aim to provide an excellent paths and tracks network for the residents and visitors of Mid Deeside to walk upon to realise the benefits walking brings to physical and mental wellbeing.

We were delighted to launch a leaflet of six local walks in July 2020. The leaflet includes a map and detailed descriptions of the routes. Free copies are available at local shops, cafes and pubs and there is a version displayed on the village notice board opposite the Victory Hall.

We hold regular work party mornings on the first Saturday and the third Tuesday of each month. The work parties are meetings of signed up volunteers of which the group has forty two. Everyone is welcome to join these sessions, please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to let us know if you would like to come along. These sessions generally involve path levelling and clearing away vegetation that has grown into and over the path. The group only works on paths with prior consent form the landowner.

The group has received very welcome financial support from Scotways, Paths for All, Aberdeenshire Council, The Rotary Club, Aboyne Academy and The Boat Inn.

APTG is run by a small committee who meet once a month, we are always looking for new committee members. We have a Facebook page - Aboyne Paths and Tracks -with regular updates and notifications.
