Tervik manor was established in 1636 and the present empire style main building was built in 1736. Marshal de Geer made significant renovation to Tervik in 1810’s. It was remodeled in the Empire style during the reconstructions in the 1820s, and the appearance has been changed in 1924-1926 according to the design influenced by the architectural style of Classicism.

The longest alley of oak trees in Finland leads to the beautiful manor. There’s also one of the largest private collections of portraits. Tervik manor is privately owned, but open for groups (preorder required).

Easter Aquhorthies Stone Circle

Easter Aquhorthies stone circle, located near Inverurie, is one of the best-preserved examples of a recumbent stone circle, and one of the few that still have their full complement of stones. It consists of a ring of nine stones, eight of which are grey granite and one red jasper. Two more grey granite stones flank a recumbent of red granite flecked with crystals and lines of quartz. The circle is particularly notable for its builders' use of polychromy in the stones, with the reddish ones situated on the SSW side and the grey ones opposite.

The placename Aquhorthies derives from a Scottish Gaelic word meaning 'field of prayer', and may indicate a 'long continuity of sanctity' between the Stone or Bronze Age circle builders and their much later Gaelic successors millennia later. The circle's surroundings were landscaped in the late 19th century, and it sits within a small fenced and walled enclosure. A stone dyke, known as a roundel, was built around the circle some time between 1847 and 1866–7.
