Old Photograph Hotel And Post Office Kincardine O'Neil Scotland

Old photograph of the hotel and Post Office in Kincardine O'Neil located between Banchory and Aboyne, Aberdeenshire, Scotland. Since ancient times there was a crossing of the Dee River at Kincardine O'Neil. Locations of the Dee crossings along with alignment of ancient trackways formed a major impetus for location of early castles and settlements. In the vicinity of Kincardine O'Neil the Middle Ages trackways to the south had a particular influence on development in and around Kincardine O'Neil and Aboyne Castle. In the 19th century, the Deeside Railway bypassed the village, impeding the expansion of the settlement, unlike towns nearby. By 1895 the population of Kincardine O'Neil exceeded 200. Most of the present buildings were built in the 19th century.
