Taking the route from the A952 at the Durie/Skelmuir turnoff and run along that road to the end and then turn right and follow round to the Kinnadie turnoff. following this road round to the end you come to the B9030 and turn left and then shortly afterwards tunr right up Bank Road which lead to Maud. Running about 2/3 up Bank Road you turn right shortly after Bulwark Croft and stay on that very hilly road till you get to the B9029 and turn right. Travel along the B9029 forcabout half a mile till you get to the Scrottshill/Aikey Brae trunoff and head on up, up and up some more followed by a long downhill to Stuartfield. From there it’s across countryside to take the back roads to Clola via a hill I call Nemesis and then back to the start.
Total distance : 15.62 miles
Running time : 2 hrs 16 minutes
- To date this is my longest run ever
- After not going along to Aikey Brae in the four years I have lived in the area, I was very surprised when I went passed in on the run.
- My other half (who is a much more accomplished runner that I am) had to come back a get me on this run so she didn’t get too far ahead… In the end she amassed the huge distance of 20 miles…. 20 miles? Awesome.

Last July I went out for an 8 mile run to Mintlaw from home via Aden Park. Here’s some of the shots I took along the way. (Good excuse for a breather eh?)
