Memsie, Aberdeenshire, is a small community near Fraserburgh. In Memsie there is a very large stone cairn, Memsie Cairn, which has been opened, but nothing found inside. Apart from the cairn, Memsie is near Mormond Hill, which was a very large listening post in the Cold War. These days the former listening post is used for Satellite communications. The nearest Kirk to Memsie is in Rathen.
