The mural was painted by artist KMG and helped by funding from Sustrans. A stunning mural has been painted on Way thanks to an cycling group who commissioned artwork for the route.

Aberdeen Cycle Forum saw a need to brighten up the trail, which runs over 41 miles from Aberdeen to Ballater, forming part of the National Cycle Network.

And thanks to backing from charity Sustrans, the organisation tasked artist with designing a bike-themed mural at the eastern end of the route.

Recently completed, the design features two leopard cyclists in a nod to Aberdeen’s mascot Spotless, a wheelchair fox and a sausage dog pedestrian along with a gull, a dog and a blackbird.

A post on the group’s website reads: "We’re really thrilled with how it has turned out and we hope it will encourage people to be more physically active whether it be through cycling, running, walking, wheeling, rollerblading, or scootering.

"You can find it on the south wall that forms part of the road bridge for Great Southern Road which is near the Duthie Park end of Deeside Way." Sign up for Aberdeen Live’s newsletter
