The Deeside Line ran from Aberdeen up the Dee Valley as far as Ballater. It could have gone further, to Braemar, but that would have brought it too close to Balmoral Castle which was already in royal ownership when the line was built in the 1850s and 1860s. Originally built by the independent Deeside Railway, the line prospered as part of the Great North of Scotland Railway in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. The Link to Braemar was established in 1904 by a pioneering GNSR bus service. Control passed to London & North Eastern Railway in 1923 and then the Scottish Region of British Railways in 1948.
