This village is the largest in the central Buchan region and lies at an important crossroads for traffic, also being an access point on the 36-mile Buchan Walkway.

It was created – like so many places in eastern Scotland – to house local estate workers in the 19th century. It had the distinct advantage, even then, of being strategically important and by the 1860s had its own railway station. Nearby is beautiful Aden Country Park with a heritage centre, nature trails and a working farm.
