098 "A village in Aberdeenshire, on the banks of the Clunie, about half a mile above its junction with the Dee, and on the great road leading to Fort George, 57 (correctly 58 1/2) miles from Aberdeen, 74 distant from Fort George, 27 from Charlestown of Aboyne, and 15 from Spittal of Glenshee. It is noted as the place where the Earl of Mar raised his standard in 1715. There are two excellent inns, one on each side of the stream which divides the village." Gazetteer of Scotland. All the houses of the village which are situated on the west of the Cluny Water are named Auchindryne, and those on the opposite side Kindrochet, both of which form the village of Castleton of Braemar. The public buildings are a Roman Catholic Chapel, a Free Church, an Established Church and two inns. There are three schools in it, one a Roman Catholic and two Protestant ones. The window of the coffee room in the Invercauld Arms Hotel is built on the spot at which the standard of rebellion was erected by the Earl of Mar in 1715. A plate made of brass with a short inscription on it, commemorative of the event, is to be placed in the wall of the house, on, or as near as possible to, the exact spot where the standard was planted. The only antiquity in the village are the remains of an old castle, built for a hunting seat by Malcolm Canmore. The houses are are all one storey high, partly thatched and partly slated and, in general, in very good condition. Auchindryne is the property of the Earl of Fife, and Kindrochet is the property of Colonel Farquarson.
