RHYNIE AND ESSIE,
AUCHINDOIR AND KEARN, WITH LUMSDEN, CABRACH, CLATT AND KINNETHMONT,
"DHYNIE and ESSIE is a united parish in the district of Strathbogio;
XV it comprehends an area of 30 square miles, bounded on the north
by the barony of Gartly, on the south by Auchindoir, and on the west by
Cabrach. The centre may be about 10 miles south from Huntly. The
Soil is rich and fertile on the banks of the Bogie ; towards the hills it is
light and gravelly, yet productive. The only antiquity in this parish
deserving of notice is a vitrified fort on the top of the hill of Noth.
There are two springs in the neighbourhood of Rhynie, remarkable for
the surprising quantity of water they discharge, each being capable of
turning a mill at its source. The places of worship are Established and
Free churches, and a chapel belonging to the Independents. There is
also a public school here. Markets are held on the first Wednesday in
June, the day after Keith in September, and the day after Kinnethmont
in October. Feeing markets are held on theJMondays before the 26th of
May and the 12nd of November ; cattle markets during the winter are
held on the Saturday before the fourth Monday in each month. In 1881
the parish, which covers an area of 12,879 acres, contained a population
of 1,126 persons, and the village 442.
Auchindoir, a parish with which Kearn has been incorporated, is
about 7 miles long and 5 broad, distant from Huntly 12 miles, and the
acreage of which is 15,310. A bluish coloured fibrous asbestos is found
in great quantities in the fissures of the rocks, which the sportsmen
frequently use for wadding for their fowling-pieces. The parish also
abounds with freestone. The only river of note is the Bogie. There
are Established and Episcopalian churches and a public school, and at
Lumsden, a small village in this parish, erected within the last forty-

Presbyterian churches and a public school. Fairs are held on the last
Tuesday in April, last Friday in May, and third Tuesday in August,
(o. s.). Population of the parish in 1881, 1,514.
Cabrach parish is partly in the county of Aberdeen and partly in
that of Banff, extending in length 5 miles by about 3 in breadth, distant
from Aberdeen 45 miles, and from Huntly 20. In the parish are an
Established church, one in connection with the United Presbyterians,
and two public schools. The Deveron and the Fidditch water this
parish. The mountains abound with game. Acreage, 34,103. Popula-
tion in 1881, 682.
Clatt is a parish of 5,711 acres. The village is situated 10 miles
s.s.e. from Huntly, and 33 w.n.w. from Aberdeen, on the rivulet Gaudie,
which afterwards falls into the Urie. It was elevated into a burgh of
barony by James VI. in 1501, with power to hold weekly and annual
markets. The superiority belongs to the family of Gordon, of Knockes-
pock, who have evinced a laudable anxiety for the improvement of the
place. The only place of worship is a church under the Establishment,
and there is also a public school. A fair is held on the third Wednesday
in November. Population of the Quoad Sacra parish in 1881, 452.
Kinnethmont parish extends about 6 miles in length by 3 in breadth,
and is about 8 miles south from Huntly. The parish, the extent of
which is 8,468 acres, is watered by several small streams, and generally
the soil is fruitful. Here are Established and Free churches. Popu-
lation of the parish in 1881, 999.
