Maryculter Village is a good spot to visit as there is a lot to see here.
The village is in the Lower Deeside area of Aberdeenshire. At the edge of the village is a public forest known as the Oldman Wood and also the children’s theme park, StoryBook Glen, which also consists of a shop and restaurant is located near the old church which is still in use today as a Church of Scotland. Other notable vicinity buildings are the Lairhillock Inn and Muchalls Castle.
Prehistoric habitation in the Maryculter area is known through archaeological sites such as Balbridie situated somewhat west of Maryculter. Roman legions marched from Raedykes to Normandykes, marching slightly west of Maryculter, as they sought higher ground evading the bogs of Red Moss and other low-lying mosses associated with the Burn of Muchalls. That march used the Elsick Mounth, one of the ancient trackways crossing the Grampian Mountains, lying west of Netherley.
The area is full of mystical charm and friendly eateries so make a day of it!
