on ground travel in Aberdeenshire?

by derigby

I'm going to travel around the Castle Trail in August from St. Andrews, to Aberdeen, to Elgin or Huntly, to Inverness. What is the best way to get around? Do the buses take people on the castle trail route? Are there trains to and from these cities?

Hi

There is only 1 rail line in Aberdeen that comes from the south and departs to the north. It passes through various towns including Elgin and Huntly, so that could be your principle method of getting around, but once you get to any of those locations, you will need to rely on local bus services.

Why not check out www.visitscotland.com - they may have some better advice.

Have a great time!

The Scotland journeyplanner here:

http://www.travelinescotland.com/journeyplanner/start.do;jsessionid=7208716CCDC361D0CA9CE0E86A488EA5.sc1

will give you details of bus services in Scotland.

You can travel by train to Aberdeen, Inverness and Elgin. www.nationalrail.co.uk for timetables/fares.

www.nationalexpress.com will give you long-distance bus times/fares (e.g. London to Inverness). Takes longer than the train, but is cheaper.

The Tourist Information Offices in Aberdeen, Inverness etc will be able to tell you which castles you can access by public transport. However, there will be some which are inaccessible without a car.

I don't think there is a specific bus which takes the castle trail route other than privately organised tours.

Firstly, St Andrews, Elgin & Inverness are not in Aberdeenshire. They are in Fife, Moray & Highland respectively.

St Andrews has no railway station of it's own. The nearest station is Leuchars (on the Edinburgh to Aberdeen line). There is a connecting bus service from directly in front of Leuchars Station to St Andrews bus station, but the connections (from memory) aren't too great. It is also possible to call a taxi to take you from Leuchars to St Andrews.

As noted above, Huntly & Elgin are on the Aberdeen to Inverness railway line.

Travel Tips for Aberdeen

Go to see Kings College - now...

by katiejt

Go to see Kings College - now the main Aberdeen University Campus. Especially on a sunny day it looks absolutely lovely. And if there's a wedding coming out of Kings College Chapel......well, you can probably imagine the scene! Belmont Street is a great wee place, with all sorts of pubs, cafes, clubs and shops - and all on one small street! There's also The Belmont - an independant cinema which shows foreign films as well as the more mainstream British and American ones. And a great wee chip shop that I always end up in at the end of a night out! Even once they've closed they'll sometimes sell chips through the door..! At one end of the street you come to Union Street, the main shopping street, and at the other is Aberdeen Art Gallery. This is a nice place to take a stroll around, no matter how much or little time you have.

Go and see the Don's in action & their newest fan

by scottishvisitor

Aberdeen Football Club was founded in 1903 when three of the city teams joined together to create the Dons - named after the river which flows nearby. Aberdeen F.C. play their home games at Pittodrie Stadium, capacity 22,199, situated near the beach promonade. The clubs mascot is Angus the Bull but if you check out the YouTube Link you will see Dolly the Sheep - an Aberdeen joke and a taunt from oppossing fans. The Northern LightsThe supporters are known as the "RED ARMY" and their motto is "STAND FREE" Although I have been to Pittodrie - one time was by default when I went - not to see the Mighty Dons - but to see Rod Stewart in Concert I have been to see them play but not as often as two of my Sons who proudly put themselves amongst the RED ARMY! The team colour are RED so bring along your football scarf - unless you are supporting the opposition!

Go for a solitary walk on a beach in any season

by scottishvisitor

There are two beaches here in Cruden Bay a little one and a big one seperated by the Water of Cruden, a small burn which flows into the North Sea. This is one of my favourite walking spots, the beach is a mile and a half long so provides a great three mile walk on its pale coloured soft sand. Cross the little wooden bridge named Ladies Bridge and go for a walk in all seasons. I love the sea with its ever changing vista, its spectacular changes in colour all influenced by the weather. I have seen many beaches on my travels, but the one in my home village, with its solitude and changing mood will always remain my favourite.
If you want to see more on Cruden Bay visit the web site
Update just to say I have updated some photos and we got a beach award this year which means the beach is clean and so is the sea = good news indeed.

The Ashvale

by markwalk about The Ashvale

This is regarded by many people as the best Fish & Chips in the UK and has one many awards to back this up. It is very popular but has a fairly large seating area.
Open 11.45am - 11pm Salmon & Chips

King's College

by iaint

This is a wonderful part of the city to visit (at least the old bits are!). Mind you, as a graduate whose grandparents lived across the street, perhaps I'm prejudiced...

It is part of the University of Aberdeen, and was founded by Bishop Elphinstone in 1495. I remember being at a 500 year celebration dinner, but the memory is vague. The memory of the ferocious hangover is much stronger.

King's College merged with Marischal College (in the city centre) to create the university as it is today.

It has many "concrete jungle" buildings thrown up at the time the university expanded significantly in the 1960s, but just ignore them (unless you have lectures there, of course).

Focus instead on the Old Town House (at the north end of the High Street), Elphinstone Hall, Wrights' and Coopers' Place, King's College Chapel, and the Elphinstone Monument.

The university publishes a very good leaflet - "Walking with History" - which will keep you right. Its available in the Old Town House and at the city's information centre in Union Street.
