Royal Deeside : Sports and Activities
Royal Deeside is fortunate in having many well-managed estates so that fishing in the rivers and lochs is excellent. The estates also offer great sport to grouse shooters and deer stalkers. But the game is available for viewing as well and Balmoral Castle is just one place where it is possible to experience a 4x4 safari.
Add some great golf courses, orienteering, hang-gliding, indoor facilities etc then the options available match those of anywhere in Scotland.
This view of the fish pond at Tullich at dusk illustrates how much the countryside of Royal Deeside has to offer outdoor sports enthusiasts. Here one can fish for trout amongst wonderful scenery. Further back the hills make excellent walks and contain many grouse moors and deer stalking zones. In the background is Lochnagar, one of the most popular 'Munros' in Scotland. The skies above are likely to be shared by a glider from Aboyne and a bird of prey such as osprey or buzzard
