Downies, Kincardineshire

Historical Description

DOWNIES, a village, in the parish of Banchory-Devenick, county of Kincardine, 8 miles (S.) from Aberdeen; containing 122 inhabitants. It is a small fishing-village, on the coast, and lying in the extreme south point of the parish. There is a very convenient cove here for fishing-boats, several of which belong to the place, each manned with four or five hands, employed in white-fishing, and sometimes visiting the Moray Firth in the herring season. The Aberdeen railway passes at a short distance.
