The Bervie Braes road (Redcliff to Invercarron Cottage) will close for the winter months on Monday, November 13 2017.

It will remain closed for 19 weeks, re-opening around mid-March.

The road closes in the winter months to reduce the risk of landslips, and while it is open it has a 3 tonne weight limit.

The Bervie Braes road was closed to traffic on 2009 after a series of dangerous landslips and remianed closed until 2013, when Aberdeenshire Councillors agreed to the road re-opening one-way from April to October.

Linking the Castle to the town, it is seen as a vital tourist link for Stonehaven.

Bright bollards currently line the route.
