What’s in a name . . . the Drove Road?

Categories: Project News | Tags: , ,

For a good few years now various community plans have talked about the Drove Road and the possibility of making it more useable as a link from Pitmedden to the Formartine and Buchan way.

But for some time now Udny residents have raised an eyebrow at the name.  Why the Drove Road?  It seems that this is not the traditional name for the route from Cloisterseat Croft (the base of Wood Recyclability, one of our local social enterprises) and the Old Craig Road near the Formartine and Buchan Way.

So what should we call it?  It has been suggested that the route was in fact a turnpike road but no definite theory has been put forward yet.

If you know or have a theory please get in touch!
