Kincardine O'Neil in the County of Aberdeenshire in the North-East of Scotland is a small historic village situated on the A93 beside the River Dee, between the larger settlements of Banchory and Aboyne and 25 miles west of the city of Aberdeen.

Kincardine O'Neil is the oldest village in Deeside and is close to the site where Macbeth was defeated. Its name comes from two parts; Kincardine is the anglicised version of the Gaelic Ceann-na-cearn, which means head of the hill or district. O'Neil is said to come from the barony of O'Neil and may even be connected to the Neil burn which passes through the village.
