Coast & Castles North – Edinburgh to Aberdeen Sustrans map
The Coast and Castles North is a 170 mile coastal route from Edinburgh to Aberdeen.
The Coast and Castles North route begins in Edinburgh, capital city of Scotland, crossing the Firth of Forth into the Kingdom of Fife with its beautiful countryside.
The route then follows the coast north passing through Dundee, numerous fishing villages and historic sites, such as the cliff top ruins of Dunnottar Castle, on its way to Aberdeen.
From Aberdeen there are ferry links onwards to Lerwick in the Shetland Islands, and Kirkwall in the Orkney Islands.
