With an ever-increasing mountain of research on the importance of exercise in brain development in children, concentration in adults and the fight against obesity, Aden has installed an outdoor gym to encourage kids and adults to have fun exercising.
Formartine & Buchan Way
The Formartine and Buchan Way (F&B Way) is a 54 mile off-road route linking Dyce with Ellon, Maud, Fraserburgh and Peterhead. The F&B Way skirts the northern edge of Aden Country Park and Aden can be the starting point for visitors to explore the line.
As an estate, Aden was home to a wide variety of trees, both native and exotic. Over 200 years later, some of these original trees, both conifer and broadleaf, can be found in Aden Country Park. Selections of these trees form the popular Tree Trail.
Aden Country Park in Aberdeenshire offers an extensive network of well-maintained footpaths offering short, medium and long walking, jogging, or cycle routes for everyone to enjoy. Aden also offers access to the long distance Formartine & Buchan Way.
