Description

The Kincardine & Mearns area offers a striking coastline and spectacular cliff top views. There is a wealth of historical interest to be discovered both along the coast and inland. Much of the coast is associated with the fishing industry, while inland agricultural heritage dominates.

Most of the cycle routes described in the linked leaflet have been designed to cater for all ages and abilities and where possible, off-road, family and commuter routes have been selected. Some routes require more effort than others. Download the leaflet at https://www.aberdeenshire.gov.uk/media/25046/stonehavenandmearns.pdf

The routes show distance, effort required and tourist attractions. Most routes use the quieter roads but may involve short stretches of main ‘A’ roads to continue the route. Great care should be taken at all times whilst cycling, particularly on these busy stretches of road. Please let large vehicles pass and remember you may encounter forestry operations off-road. Please keep well clear and observe signs and diversions for your safety.
