Royal Deeside : Villages and Small Communities
The western half of Royal Deeside lies within the Cairngorms National Park and much of the area consists of beautiful mountains and glens. It is very sparsely populated with the biggest centre, Banchory, having a population of a few thousand people. Nonetheless, even in this area of small communities some are smaller than others. In this section information is given about some of these smaller communities. The number of these villages increases as you go east into the lower lying and more fertile farmlands around Banchory.
The principal communities are listed - from east to west - below.
