Does anyone know suitable trails in the North East of Scotland for wheelchair users?

I live in Scotland (I'm lucky), the north east but since receiving treatment for cancer, I lost one of my lower limbs, I've really missed walking in beautiful Scottish trails. I've visited most of the castles in Scotland and walked the trails as a child. So it was my favourite past time, does anyone know any trails near by that a wheelchair user could do? Please remember that I can not walk as my prosthetic leg is too small and I can't afford a special bike.  Any suggestions welcome.


  • You might find Walks with Wheelchairs a useful site as you can filter by region, distance etc for routes that will suit you.

    There is also a leaflet here which lists a few walks you might want to consider.

    Hope that helps, let us know if you find any really good places  :)

    Thank you, I haven't heard of that link before but I'll give anything ago (with someone helping push me). I'll let you know how I get on as I didn't know what it was like in a wheelchair until I was in one. My favourite pass time was walking in the country too. Again thank you Rachel
