(jTLENMUICK is a large parish iu the district of M:irr, formed by
t)ie union of the parishes of Glcnrauick, Tullich and Gleiigiiiru. It
lies about 4U milua w. of Aberdeen, is about 18 miles in length, and
1,^ in breadth, intersected by the Doe and several of its tributary
Bl reams. The soil is shallow and early, producing good grain; the
bills are of considerable elevation, and many of tliem covered with
wood to the very summits. Specimens of lead ore have been found
near the castle of Glengairu. and limestone is everywhere abundant.
The parish of Glenmuick has a population of about 2,200.
In the village of Tullich are seen the remains of an old Itirk, the
walls of which enclose the burial-place of the Farquharaons of White-
house. The view from. this spot, looking towards the west, is much
admired, and presents a series of liil.s rising one above another,
with the lofty Locbnagar towering over all.
In this parish (Glenmuick) is the agreeable and quiet village of
BALLATER.much rcsorted to in tho summer by tourists, on account
of the scenery around, winch combines both the picturesque and
the grand. The neighbourhood is also occasionally honoured by
tho presence of royalty— Balmoral Castle being at no great distance ;
and his rnyfll highne'^s the Prince of Wales having two shooting
boxes, Birk Hall and Gairusheils, in this vicinity. The ruins of
Knock Castle are ornamGutal to the scenery at one point, and the
country is studied with many seats of the gentry. Loch Cannor, or
Kan, a lake, is in this neighbourhood; on a small island within it
are the ruins of a castle, said to have been once a hunting seat of
Malcolm Canmore. The lake is beautiful and romantic in its features,
and skirted wi;,h birch, hazel and other woods. Speaking of this
dir^trict, indeed, it may bo pronounced one of tho most interesting
in Aberdeenshire. The village of Ballater is small, but regularly
formed— the church standing near to its centre. Several houses
have been erected expressly for the reception of visitors, and
additional accommodation is found in a very superior hotel— the
"Invercauld Arms " — containing every convonieuce that maybe
desired, either by families or commercial gentlemen. The Great
North of Scotland railway line from Aboyno tcrniiuatea here. A
military barracks, to accommodate about 70 mtn, was erected here
iu 1870. The population is about 700.
The mineral wells and baths at Pannanich arc within about two
miles of Ballater, on the banks of the Dee. The Avaters are highly
serviceable in cases of scrofula and dyspep,-;ia,and in allcomplamta
where the blood is either deficient in quantity or vitiated in quality;
thiy have also proved beneficial in cases of alone and gravel. The
increasing demand for accommodation evinces that the wells are
justly rising iu public estimation. There is a good hotel adjacent
to the wells.
Fairs are held at Ballater on the first Tuesday in May, and the
second Monday and Tuesday in September (o.s.),"and on "the Satur-
day previous to the 22nd November (n.s.).
