Kincardine holiday accommodation

Kincardine Latitude: 56.0690° N Longitude: 3.7167° W Kincardine Postcode AB34  Kincardine WOEID 24435

In the neighbourhood of Fettercairn there arose in the reign of William the Lion the fortress of hammer dressed sandstone that was the royal castle of Kincardine. There, in 1296, the scroll of John Balliol‘s resignation of the Scottish Crown in favour of Edward I of England was written.

The castle was finally demolished in 1646. In the meantime the town of Kincardine itself had flourished and declined.

It was never more than a row of straggling clay built hovels extending from the East Port near Kincardine Castle to the West Port near Fettercairn House.

Stonehaven replaced it as the county town in the l7th century but it had its market cross, and part, at least, of that ancient monument is believed to form the shaft of Fettercairns market cross today, having been moved there in 1730, along with the annual fair of St Catherine.

Nothing remains on the site of Kincardine now but the disused kirkyard of the vanished St Catherine’s Chapel.
