The town of Banchory (pop 6,500) lies on the north side of the River Dee some 18 miles west of Aberdeen, Europe's oil capital.
Originally settled in 5-6th centuries at the confluence of the River Feugh, the site became the location of the annual St Ternan Fair during the middle ages.
The town flourished with the arrival of the Deeside Railway line in 1853 and became a popular destination for both holidaymakers and day-trippers from Aberdeen.
During the 1970-90s the town expanded as a result of the oil boom and is currently undergoing a new period of growth.
There are a range of shops, hotels, restaurants, garages and local services. The town has not one, but two excellent golf courses.
Scolty Tower was erected in 1839 in memory to General William Burnett of Banchory Lodge. He served in Flanders in 1793 under the Duke of York and was created General in 1837. The tower is located on a prominent hilltop overlooking the town and was restored by the Rotary Club in 1992.
