(The Mearns)

A former county of Scotland on the northeast coast, Kincardineshire or 'The Mearns' was bounded on the north by Aberdeenshire, from which it was separated by the River Dee, and on the south by Angus from which it was divided by the River North Esk. Bounded to the west by the Grampian Mountains and the east by the North Sea, its coastline extended 32 miles (51 km) from north to south. Its county town was Stonehaven. In 1975 it became part of Grampian Region and in 1996 it formed the southern part of Aberdeenshire.
