DRUMLITHIE is a village in the parish of
G-lenbervie, 23 miles south-west of Aber-
deen, 18 north from Montrose, 7 north-by-
west from Bervie and about 6^ south-
west from Stonehaven, on the road to
Laurencekirk, situated nearly in the centre
of the east side of the county, and has a
station on the Caledonian railway. The
parish of Glenbervie, which is in Kincar-
dineshire poor combination, is upwards of
6 miles in length, by a breadth of 3 in
some parts and 5 at others ; it is bounded
on the west by the Water of Bervie and
Fordoun, on the east by Dunnottar and
Fetteresso, on the south and south-east by
Arbuthnott and on the north by the hills
of Strachan and Durris. The soil of the
upper part of the district is of bluish
clay, and in the lower a dry fertile loam.
The northern portion of the parish lies
partly among the Grampian Hills. The
river Bervie bounds the district partly on
the west, and the Carron has its source
within it. The hamlet of Glenbervie, which
stands in the vicinity of the former river,
is a barony of the Douglas family. In the
churchyard of the Established church are
interred some of the ancestors of the poet
Robert Burns. The parish of Glenbervie
contains 15,041 statute acres; rateable
value, £7,899, and in 1891 had a popula-
tion of 8S7, and in 1901, 854.

DUNNOTTAR. anciently spelt Dunoy-
ter, is a parish of an irregular form, the
eastern side running from Stonehaven to
the south, a distance of 5 miles, and from
thence about 5 miles north; abutting on the
parishes of KinnefE and Glenbervie, from
thence descending to the Carron Water at
the base of that hill, where Dunnottar and
Glenbervie are met by the parish of Fet-
teresso. The seaward boundary of the
parish is a continuous chain of rocks and
cliffs containing many caverns, which ren-
der Dunnottar one of the most romantic
places on the east coast. It is in Kincar-
dineshire poor combination. The principal
object of interest in the parish is Dunnottar
Castle, within the walls of which formerly
stood the parish church. It is seated on a
perpendicular rock, 150 feet above the level
of the sea, and about 3 acres in extent,
and is almost separated from the land by a
deep chasm. It was built during the con-
test between Bruce and Baliol, by an
ancestor of the Marischal family, and
withstood a long siege by Cromwell's army,
its ultimate surrender being upon honour-
able terms ; it was often used as a state
prison, and several of the nonconforming
Presbyterian clergy have been its inmates.
The castle was dismantled shortly after
the rising of 1715, when its proprietor,
George (Keith) Earl iMarischal, was at-
tainted for high treason. Since that period
the castle became by purchase the property
of the nearest heir male. Sir Alexander
Keith, cf Dunnottar and Ravelston, Knight
IMarischal of Scotland, and is now the
property of the trustees of Mrs. Ann
Katheriae Innes. The fabric is still fairly
entire. Here, during the Commonwealth,
the regalia of Scotland were placed for
