Aden Country Park is located off Station Road in Mintlaw, Aberdeenshire. The post code for the park is AB42 5FQ. As the map below shows, the park can be accessed on foot, bicycle, or by vehicle.

Please be aware, if you do put the park postcode into Google Maps it can sometimes take you on a wild goose chase i.e. not to the main park entrance. The key thing to bear in mind is that if you are coming from the Aberdeen, Peterhead of Fraserburgh direction, go all the way to the main Mintlaw roundabout, and take the turn off which leads you past the front of Mintlaw Academy. If you keep driving past the Academy, on your left-hand-side you will come across the main entrance of the park.
