The Royal Deeside Railway is a standard gauge steam and diesel hauled heritage railway, in a beautiful setting running alongside the River Dee.  The line is currently about one mile long and the return journey lasts about 15 to 20 minutes.

At the Milton of Crathes, we have an award-winning Victorian station, a railway carriage tearoom, a shop with ice creams etc., all with a wonderful view of the surrounding hills.

CORONAVIRUS : The Deeside Railway Company regrets to advise that due to the continuing coronavirus situation and the limitations imposed by social distancing, the railway is reluctantly cancelling all events, services and charters for the rest of 2020.

If the restrictions are eased sufficiently in time, it may become possible to run a limited Santa Special service at the end of the year, watch this space for details.

The railway apologises for any inconvenience caused by these unfortunate circumstances and we hope to be back providing fun days out for all our visitors in 2021.
