Excerpt: Aboyne Castle is a historic castle in Aberdeenshire , Scotland at the northern edge of the town of Aboyne (Grid Reference NO5299). There is a large extent of planted policies on both sides of the River Dee , including ornamental plantations and the Loch of Aboyne . The location of Aboyne Castle was selected for its strategic position near the Dee and controlling the northern end of one of the Mounth crossings. The castle was constructed by Bysets, Lords of Strathdee and Aboyne before 1233. In 1242, after the expulsion from Scotland of John and Walter Byset, who had been alleged of the murder of Patrick , Earl of Atholl , at Haddington , East Lothian , Aboyne Castle fell to ownership of the Crown and became a favourite royal residence.
