The former station a Aboyne on 18 October 2012 viewed from the east end. Although the former Up platform building no longer has a canopy, the corbels that supported it are quite clearly seen. Much of the trackbed here has been built over making it difficult to see where it used to be but at the west end the approach to the tunnel is easily found. The tunnel itself is in use as a rifle range and beyond that towards Ballater much of the tarckbed is used as the Deeside Way cycle and footpath.

View east along the Deeside Way towards Aberdeen at Murtle on a beautiful autumn day in November 2012. Opened in 1853, Murtle station was reduced to a Halt in 1930, before closing in April 1937. The old timber station building has had limited alteration. The granite Station Master's ('Agent' in GNoSR terms) house is in good repair and is sited just north of the station.
