Take the Deeside Way and walk the Fungle Mounth, an old drove road in Birsemore just to the south of Aboyne, to an ascent of Morven, a Corbett with an attitude at nearby Logie Coldstone, to a full blown Winter ascent of eagle ridge, a grade 5 ice climb on Lochnagar, the "local" mountain.

In Aboyne there is a side trail from the Deeside Way called the Tarland Way which is a 10km route from Aboyne to Tarland.
