Tour Aboyne

Aboyne is a small town on the River Dee, west of Ballater, now mainly an opulent commuter town for
Aberdeen and a tourist centre. It was also known as Charlestown
of Aboyne after its 17th century founder Charles Gordon, Earl of Aboyne. Its medieval castle was enlarged in 1671 and 1801, and reduced to its nucleus in 1975. It contains the Formaston Stone, dating from between 800 and 1000, with the Celtic mirror symbol and an ogham inscription. The Aboyne Highland Games,
held in September and dating from 1867, are among the most popular. The Loch of Aboyne, to the northwest, has
waterskiing facilities and golf.
