Dyce
Dyce Community Garden
Today the town of Dyce is best known for its proximity to Aberdeen airport. The town grew up along the west bank of the River Don, and water power provided by the river helped make Dyce a centre for textile and paper manufacture.

The town grew up in the mid-Victorian period at a main junction on the rail line to Inverness. During WWI conscientious objectors were held at a work camp here and forced to work at Dyce Quarries.

The most interesting historical building in Dyce is the old ruined church of St Fergus, which has a pair of Pictish symbol stones set into the east gable.

The 8th-century missionary St Fergus established a church here but the roofless church we see today is late medieval. In the churchyard is a 'mort house' and the broken remains of a medieval font.
