ARBEADIE, a village, in the parish of BANCHORY TERNAN, county of KINCARDINE; containing 301 inhabitants. This village, which is of very recent origin, takes its name from the estate on which it has been built, and appears to have been erected to supply the want of the ancient village of Banchory. A post-office has been established; there are three good inns, and, in the immediate vicinity, a branch of the Bank of Scotland, and a small lock-up house for the temporary confinement of petty offenders. The Independents have a place of worship.
