Was thinking of using my cheap railcard to visit Cove Rangers new ground. Train to Aberdeen is easy enough, but what is the best way to get to the Balmoral Stadium from there, outside using Aberdeen's extortionately priced taxis?

Looked into it before, about an hour's walk or the number 3 bus from the centre and get off at Altens Farm Road and a short walk. Locals might have better advice. Booked up to go but Clach's game was postponed because Cove had a cup game on.

No 3 bus for sure, about 5 every hour. Make sure you go round ikea on the right side, not the left, if you’re not following anybody with a scarf on :lol:

Cheers for that. Am hoping to pop up while the £17 return offer is live.

I'm using it for Huntly away in a couple of weeks. Stopping the night too, very excited.

Get off the 3 bus just before the big roundabout where the Shell garage is, walk around (or through) the garage forecourt and follow the road around to the right past the Royal Mail centre. There should be folk to follow and there's some signs. 3 bus us handy as you can drink in town and then head out. There's a bus stop just outside the Grill...

It’s a total nothing of a ground with very little around it - apart from a new school. As said the number 3 bus will take you quite close, you’ll also go right past Bank O’ Dee’s ground on that route.

Huntly is a proper wee ground and plenty pubs around the town.

Inverurie Locos is an easy one to bag if you're using the train. Decent wee ground and plenty of options for a pint too.
