New Deer (Scottish Gaelic: Achadh Reite)

New Deer is a settlement in Aberdeenshire that lies in the valley of Deer. It was founded after monks from Deer Abbey, Old Deer, built a chapel at Auchreddie. Around 1507, the register of Deer Abbey lists its lands in the "new paroche of Deir". The name Auchreddie has dropped in significance over the years, but the southern end of the village is still known by this name.

In 1805, New Deer was extended to the north by the third James Ferguson of Pitfour (1735–1820), the elder brother of Patrick Ferguson. [[1]]
