Hidden Aberdon: the River Tour - Sir Duncan Rice Library - Aberdeen

This tour was launched in 2013 as part of the "Surfing the Don" art exhibition. Beginning outside the University Library, at what was the heart of the Powis estate, we follow the watercourses of the medieval landscape through the Chanonry, into Seaton Park and walk along the River Don, uncovering lost and forgotten stories of the Auld Toun's main water source. Ending at Brig o' Balgownie where there is always wildlife to see by the bridge, we conclude this nature and history walk through one of our truly hidden spacesDuration approx 2hrsNot suitable for those with restricted mobility - wear sturdy shoes incase of wet weather as the paths near the river can be slippery.
