What and Where is Ballogie Hall

Ballogie Hall was built by WE Nicol in 1908 for the celebration of his daughter’s homecoming after her marriage. The Hall is near the centre of the settlement of Marywell just off the B 976 between Banchory and Aboyne. It is opposite Trembling Trees, which for many years was a joiner’s shop. A daily newspaper in 1910 described the Hall as "a commodious building specially built for social and other functions in the district, and very prettily situated, being surrounded by fir tress and aspens." At the homecoming celebration in 1910, a huge bonfire was built In front of the Hall, and the match was put to the pile of timber by the oldest tenant on the estate, Mrs Smart of "Trembling Trees". In the 1950’s/60’s the Hall was extended and modernised to meet the requirements of the day, but it is now in need of further upgrading to meet to-day’s standards.
