Hexagonal logo with letter GGordon Way

18 km / 11 miles

Aberdeenshire
From Bennachie this trail in Eastern Aberdeenshire partly follows the old peat extraction routes on the Bennachie forests. You walk the length of Bennachie and then continue west to Suie Car Park and takes in forests, farmland and moorlands across several hills. Currently the available publication covers the route to Suie car park, with the intention to extend to Rhynie in due course.
