Where is Logie Coldstone?

The parish of Logie Coldstone (Scottish Gaelic: Lògaidh) is in Aberdeenshire, north of the River Dee, 3 miles west of Tarland in the Cromar. It is in a basin of land cut out of the Grampian foothills between Aboyne and Ballater.

History of Logie Coldstone

Early in the 17th century the parishes of Logie (or Logie-Mar) and Coldstone were united to form Logie Coldstone. 
The village kirk ("Newkirk of Logie Coldstone") was built in 1781 and extended in 1876. It was converted to a private residence in 1993. 
The village has a war memorial dedicated to 27 men who fell in the First World War and 5 who fell on the Second World War. It was erected outside the kirk, which is now a private residence.
