Old Photograph Golf Course And River Dee Banchory Scotland

Old photograph of the golf course and River Dee near Banchory, Aberdeenshire, Scotland. The club here has a long history of great golf and has more than stood the test of time. The course was first built in 1905 and extensively remodelled by John Souter.

Tour Scotland video of old photographs of Banchory, Aberdeenshire, Scotland. Banchory town in Aberdeenshire is about 18 miles west of Aberdeen, near where the Feugh River meets the River Dee. The name is thought to be derived from an early Christian settlement founded by St Ternan. It is claimed that Ternan was a follower of St Ninian. Tradition has it that he established his settlement on the banks of the River Dee. John Macqueen Cowan, who was born in 1892 in Banchory, was a prominent Scottish botanist in the mid 20th century. He died in 1960.
