The Royal Deeside Railway

The Royal Deeside Railway gives you an opportunity to experience all of the excitement and glamour of a vintage railway journey in a beautiful setting alongside the River Dee. The original Deeside Railway opened in 1853 and was regularly used by the Royal Family on their way to Balmoral Castle before closing in 1966.

It’s now been restored to its former glory and features a mile-long track to ride on, soon to be expanded to two miles to reach Banchory. It’s run by passionate volunteers who take pride in helping visitors learn all about its fascinating history.

Fantastic reviews on TripAdvisor 

“What a superb area for a railway line. And we were lucky enough to see a working steam train. Superb.”

“Fantastic little railway in a wonderful location, everyone here has a passion for the place and its upkeep.”

“Went here in the summer and took a wee train ride. Well worth it! Brought back memories of the days when we went on a train ride when we were kids. Would recommend this to both young and old.”
