Note (23 September 2011)

(Location entered as NO c. 877 854 [N56 57.6 W2 12.20]). The location assigned to this record is essentially arbitrary. The location of the (presumably former) pier at Stonehaven remains unclear, but it presumably stood within the area of the present Stonehaven Harbour (NO88NE 56.00), which is centred at NO 87764 85415.
