Legends of the Braes o' Mar (Title of a book)
098 "The hill on the south side of the road, opposite to Braemar Castle is called Craig-Koynoch; and was so called, because of King Kenneth, who, as is said, used here oft-times to sit and view his hounds in the chase - the views herefrom being extraordinarily grand." - New Deeside Guide, page 67.
"Creag Choinnich, or Kenneth's Craig, had its name from King Kenneth, who used it as a heading hill, and sometimes as a look-out to see how his royal hunts through the strath below were conducted." - Legends of the Braes o' Mar, page 5. It is now all covered with wood except a portion around its summit which is heathy pasture.
