Walking the Line: A Curious Walkers guide to the Formartine and Buchan Way describes what can be seen on and near the Way..
You will be surprised how interesting the walk can be and just how much there is to find.
The Formartine and Buchan Way is the long distance footpath following the disused railway line linking the fishing ports of Fraserburgh and Peterhead with Aberdeen.
It traverses the heartlands of rural Aberdeenshire, a land of prehistoric monuments, medieval castles, ruined churches and abbeys, scenes of ferocious religious conflicts, Jacobite strongholds, abandoned mills, the planned villages and elegant mansions of the improving lairds and the only hill carvings in Scotland.
A valuable wild life corridor, the Formartine and Buchan Way is now a rich habitat for wild flowers, birds and mammals.
The book will be of interest to those who recall the days before the closure of the line as well as those who enjoy its recreational facilities.
