Kincardine and Deeside was formerly (1975-96) a local government district in the Grampian Region of Scotland. In 1996 it was included in the Aberdeenshire unitary area.

History[edit]

This region is rich in prehistory with numerous megalithic sites, notable in the earliest period of recorded history with several significant Roman sites. The region is also traversed by several ancient trackways across the Grampian Mounth, including the Causey Mounth and Elsick Mounth.[1] In addition there is evidence of ancient burials from the Beaker Period.[2]
