Dinnet is a small but popular holiday village lying between Aboyne and Ballater.
The 9th century Kinord Stone, which can be seen on the shores of Loch Kinord, is thought be many to be the finest example of a Celtic symbol stone in the UK and reflects the rich and ancient history of the area. The loch also boasts an Iron Age crannog or man-made island that dates back to the first millennium AD, and Castle Island was once a royal stronghold dating back to the 11th century and the days of MacBeth, who was a real king of Scotland and not jjust a Shakespearian character.
