It was a brisk morning, just right for a stroll in the snow at Sheddocksley Woods on the outskirts of town. This is an area of town I've never explored before, despite living in Aberdeen for a long, long time.
We are heading to these woods in the distance
There is a good track, but it was icy
The frozen surface of a burn
A view to the hills in the west
An old drystane dyke
There is still some farming in the area. Most of Aberdeen was farmland
A view to the north
It was a very pleasant walk.
There are a couple of trail routes in the area and the following day I went back again.... It was icy - ouch!
