History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
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.
