Stonehaven

Stonehaven is a pretty harbour town south of Aberdeen, famous for its Hogmanay fireballs ceremony.

Stonehaven is the site of prehistoric events evidenced by finds at Fetteresso Castle and Neolithic pottery excavations from the Spurryhillock area. The town lies at the southern origin of the ancient Causey Mounth trackway, which was built on high ground to make passable this only available medieval route from coastal points south to Aberdeen.
