"BANCHORY-TERNAN, a parish, containing the small post-town of Banchory or Arbeadie, on the north border of Kincardineshire. It is bounded on the south by the parishes of Durris and Strachan; and on all other sides by Aberdeenshire. Its length is about 9 miles, and its breadth about the same. "

from the Genuki website

"Arbeadie" appears to have been used in naming the village, the Wood of Arbeadie, Arbeadie House, Arbeadie Cottage and modern avenues and streets. It is linked to the very foundation of Banchory Ternan itself, and St Ternan's Well:

Arbeadie village is not on the current OS mapsheet, it appears as part of Banchory. Arbeadie village is depicted to the W of Banchory on OS 1st Edition mapsheet (Kincardine, Sheet V, 1868-9). Information from RCAHMS (KD), February 2005."

from Canmore website

"Arbeadie is a lovely family home built of harled stone under a slate roof close to the centre of Banchory and within easy walking distance to the school.

The house is set in beautiful landscaped gardens with a southerly outlook. The original house was built in 1805 and has been extended, probably twice. The gardens formerly produced vegetables for the local greengrocer."
