Mid Aberdeenshire

Mid Aberdeenshire is the area around and to the north of the River Don; this covers the area that was formed the former district of Gordon, which in turn was part of the Grampian region. Like its neighbour to the south, the River Don is formed in the Cairngorms and flows east to Aberdeen and the North Sea; it is the 6th longest river in Scotland. Along the route of the Don are the settlements of Alford, Inverurie, Kintore and Dyce; the last named is also the location of Aberdeen’s airport.

Inverurie sits at the point where the River Urie joins the River Don and the main road from Aberdeen heads northwest, following the course of this river. The road continues to Huntly, which is located at the point where the Rivers Deveron and Bogie meet; the town was formerly known as Milton of Strathbogie. Huntly Castle, to the north of Huntly itself, was the home of the Gordon family; it was this family who gave both the Gordon district of Aberdeenshire as well as the town of Huntly their names.
