Hatton of Fintray
Hatton of Fintray, commonly referred to as Fintray, is a village on the River Don in Aberdeenshire, in the parish of Fintray. It was a textile village and its church dates from 1821, and there used to be a nearby ferry crossing the river.
The name of the parish is said to be derived from the Gaelic, Fionn-traigh, meaning “the white, or fair margin of coast, or boundary of coast” an appellation descriptive enough of the greater portion of the parish which lies along the north bank of the Don. The parish is bounded on the south by the river Don, which separates it from the parishes of Dyce, Kinellar and Kintore; by the parish of Keith-hall on the north and west; and by Newmachar on the east.
