On the ordnance survey map of Eastern Highlands Cluny Castle is marked.
From Aberdeen take the A96 heading north west.
Find Kintore go west to Kemnay south-west to Craigearn then south west
again and you will see the castle marked. From Cluny castle head north
and you will find Monymusk.
Good luck.
