Carron Water, Aberdeenshire


Carron Water is a river in Aberdeenshire, Scotland. Carron Water rises in Fetteresso Forest on the eastern edge of the Grampians. It flows past Fetteresso Castle and discharges into the North Sea at Stonehaven Bay. [United Kingdom Ordnance Survey Map, Landranger 45, Stonehaven and Banchory, 1:50,000 scale 2004] Carron Water separates the Old Town from Stonehaven's new town (just over two hundred years of age), laid out in grid-iron fashion. Somewhat to the north is Garron Point, whilst Bellman's Head and Downie Point lie to the south. Historic features in the vicinity include the Stonehaven Tolbooth, Dunnottar Castle, and slightly further north, the Chapel of St. Mary and St. Nathalan and Muchalls Castle.

Stonehaven's other river at the north end of town is the Cowie Water.
