Remains of the Aberdeenshire Canal
The Aberdeenshire Canal, which connected Aberdeen Harbour and Inverurie (Port Elphinstone), opened in 1805 but it was rapidly made obsolete by the railway and it closed in 1854 (see: LinkExternal link ). This fragment, connecting to the River Don at 90 deg in the background, found further use as a lade (millstream).
