Dalmaik Church. History
Originally named Dalmayok or St. Mayota's Church, was dedicated to St.Mayota and dates from 1062 and has been often altered and renovated, until 1836, when a new church was built near Drumoak village. It has been a religious site for a long time, in the 6th century St. Mayota (Mazota or Maik) was one of nine nuns who followed St. Bridget (Brigit or Bride) across from Ireland to instruct St. Bridget's cousin Garnard, King of the Picts, on the Christian faith, after he was baptised and built a church in Abernethy, the nuns came to Deeside and fixed their dwelling at what became known as Dalmaik. St. Maik's Well still survives across the Coldstream Burn near the church, see NO8198 : St Maik's Well.
