Grampian Cycle Partnership, along with the North East Adventure Tourism Project, are collaborating on an exciting project aspiring to signpost some of the most iconic road hill climbs in Aberdeenshire.

We are really interested to hear which local road climbs you think deserve to be called 'iconic' and considered for signage.

We have added some suggestions below.

If you've rode them all, rank them from 1 (most favourite) to 14 (least favourite) or, for example, if you've only rode 4 of these, please rank them 1 to 4 (most favourite to least favourite).

Suie (South)
Knaven Hill
Gairnshiel (North)
Cairn O' Mount (South)
Queens View
Pennan to Aberdour
Suie (North)
Gairnshiel (South)
Cairn O' Mount (North)
Lords' Throat

For you, what is it that makes your favourite climbs so special?


What climbs did we miss from this draft list? Please tell us which ones you think should be included for consideration as part of this project.
(Please feel free to add GPX link/Strava segment name/What3Words for start & finish etc)


While the focus is on Aberdeenshire, are there any climbs in Aberdeen City you would like to see added to the list?


What are your suggestions for what else is needed to help improve or showcase what the North East has to offer cyclists?
