Kincardine O'Neil is an attractive historical village in Royal Deeside, located near the northern bank of the River Dee. It is just under five miles to the east of Aboyne, and within commuting distance from Aberdeen city centre, which is 25 miles to the east.

History of Kincardine O'Neil

One of the oldest villages in the desirable Royal Deeside area, Kincardine O'Neil - known locally as Kinker - has been the location of a small settlement since the 17th Century, developing further with the opening of a new bridge over the Dee in the 1820s. Most of the buildings in Kincardine O'Neil are over a century old, and the village was declared a conservation area in 1978. There has been little in the way of new development in recent years, and the village retains its striking historical charm. The current population of Kincardine O'Neil is fewer than 500, and the village has a good selection of local amenities including a post office and local shop with nearby Aboyne and Banchory also offering further choice.
