Flooding in Kintore

Following 24 hours of torrential rain – the tail end of tropical storm Danny we are told – the B977 to Hatton of Fintray is closed.

The flood water has created a new Loch of Kintore on the usual flood plain between Kintore Golf Club and Boat of Kintore, over the fields known as Breadies Haugh and Balbithan Island.
