Route 195 is known as the Deeside Way and follows the line of the Deeside Railway between Aberdeen to Ballater.

The pathway is easily usable and shared by walkers, cyclists and horse riders alike, and runs from Duthie Park, Aberdeen to Peterculter. There are two breaks across quiet country roads and a larger one at the busy Milltimber Brae.

Between Kincardine O'Neil and Aboyne there is no route currently available. From Aboyne the route is now completed through to Ballater. There are plans to eventually improve the line so that all breaks will be bridged providing a safe unbroken path from the Duthie Park to Banchory.
