Royal Arch, Main Street, Fettercairn
Fettercairn is a lovely small village made famous for being at the southern end of the Banchory to Fettercairn Cairn o' Mount road, one of the regular roads closed by snow in a Scottish winter.
Erected in 1864, the Royal Arch commemorates the visit by Queen Victoria and Prince Albert in September 1861. Built using Aldbar stone and ashlar, it is 60 feet in height between the octagonal towers and is a Category B listed building. LinkExternal link. Only cars are now allowed to pass through the arch.
