Kincardine Castle

Tullich Church, Ballater
The ruins of Tullich Church date back to the 14th century, although its recorded history goes back to 1275. The church was used for worship until 1800 and had a burial ground with a circular wall around it, as it was believed that the Devil would not cross a circle. The churchyard has a number of pre-Christian and early Christian symbol stones.

Church of St Mary
These attractive 13th century ruins lie in the village of Kincardine O’Neill and were in use as a place of worship until 1862 when a new church was built directly opposite.
