Photographs of the Banff and Buchan area of Aberdeenshire in North East Scotland that do not fit into other specialist categories or particularly illustrate the nature of the area.
Old Croft Kinnoir wyy5449jhp 
 Old croft corrugated iron roof ruined fence roadside Kinnoir Huntly Aberdeenshire which area dwindling feature of the countryside as many have been converted and modernised as the oil industry demand for housing had expanded well beyond the main commuting areas. A few ruined stone ones remain most with missing roofs and used for little else than a sheep pen in wintry weather and along the Cabrach are the remains of a once thriving community long since cleared as agriculture has become more mechanised and crofting uneconomic.
