Lovely old church. Worth seeing and going to mass. The organist plays and sings nicely.

One of the oldest parishes in the area was established here, perhaps in the 12th century. The church itself is also quite old and, admittedly, beautiful. Unfortunately, only someone who has read or heard about it before can be interested in this place. There is a lack of adequate tourist information, church and unpleasant pastor. Unfortunately, there is no possibility of visiting or taking photos inside. You can only see the church from the inside if you go to mass. It's a real shame as this place has potential.

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.
