Cleaning up the banks at Potarch
The Dee Catchment Partnership has been helping Aberdeenshire Council clean up after the floods. A short section of the Deeside Way at Potarch was choked with barbed wire and fenceposts following damage from storm Frank last year. We cleared debris from a stile and broken fencing from the picnic site ready for the 2017 season. Calum from the River Dee Trust came out to help remove the waste and carry out the repairs. A satisfying day in the field.
This site is adjacent to the Deeside Way. The long distance path runs from near the centre of Aberdeen, oil capital of Europe, to Ballater, in the Cairngorms National Park, famous for it’s Victorian Heritage and links to Balmoral Castle. The path is suitable for walkers and cyclists with many sections suitable for horses as well and is Route 195 of the National Cycle Network which is coordinated and promoted by Sustrans.
