Skene's Wood, Greenlands, Balbithan and Larrick have many hut circles and cairns within them. Like Bellmuir, near Methlick, this must have been a close knit community living in the shadow of Bennachie. Larrick is the old Scots name for Larch, perhaps an indicator to local environs. Unlike the neighbouring villages these hut circles and cairns are to be found in a field only a few meters north of the house at Larrick.

Leave the B977 between Hatton Of Fintray and Kintore, taking the minor road to Inverurie. Larrick is the first track to the left. Parking is available at the house. Probably best to ask permission, as I did in a roundabout way.

The only reason for coming here was a conversation with my accountant who happens to be the accountant for the residents at Larrick. So cheers to John Smith.
