Strichen

Strichen is a village sitting on the A981, connecting to New Deer 7.2 miles (12 km) to the southwest and Fraserburgh 8 miles (13 km) to the north-northeast, and the B9093, connecting it to New Pitsligo about four miles due west.

It is situated on the River Ugie at the foothills of Mormond Hill. The Strichen White Horse is constructed of quartz on Mormond Hill, some 1500 m northeast of Strichen. The village got its name from Lord Strichen.

There is considerable evidence of local habitation by early man in and around Strichen. Strichen Stone Circle is found near Strichen House on publicly accessible land. Further south lies the Catto Long Barrow and a number of tumuli (burial mounds). [[1]]
