Evidence of the neolithic settlers can be seen in the remains of Finzean House Long Cairn, one of two scheduled monuments in Finzean;  the other being the Ballochan hut-circles in the Forest of Birse, which dates from the late bronze age or early Iron Age , between — years ago.
Another well-known monument in Finzean is the Dardanus Stone, which lies alongside the B road at Corsedardar. This standing stone was uncovered at the end of the 18th century and has been held together by iron bars since being broken in two by workmen in about The stone is alleged to commemorate a mythical Scottish king called Dardanus, who reigned in the 1st century AD according to the writer Hector Boece.
In reality, it is more likely to be a bronze age monument left by the Beaker people . In the 10th century the lands of Finzean became the personal property of the King of Scots , who used the Forest of Birse as a hunting reserve.
In the 12th century King William the Lion gifted the area to the Bishops of Aberdeen who continued to own it until the 16th century, during which they gradually sold off all the land.
During the 17th and 18th centuries, the Farquharson family acquired the whole of the eastern part of Finzean, while the Forest of Birse was owned by the Earl of Aboyne , but with ancient common rights retained by all the inhabitants of Birse parish to this day.
Evidence of the rich later history of Finzean can be seen in the 17 listed buildings and monuments that have been designated in Finzean.
The most important of these buildings are undoubtedly the three water-powered mills along the Water of Feugh which are owned and managed by Birse Community Trust. These wooden buildings date from the s but were restored to full working order in the s. Birse Castle, which is the only remaining castle in Finzean, dates from about , was restored from a ruin in , and was extensively refurbished in  as the main Scottish home of Charles Pearson, brother of the 4th Viscount Cowdray and owner of Dunecht estate , part of which is in the Forest of Birse.
The second half of the 20th century saw declines in traditional rural industries in Finzean, as elsewhere. There are now only seven tenant farms in Finzean where there were nearly 20 in the s, and Finzean estate's own farming operation now dominates much of the area. This decline was countered by the growing wealth generated by the advent of the North Sea Oil industry in the s. This brought an influx of new people to the north-east of Scotland, and Finzean was no exception.
Being an attractive location on Royal Deeside and within commuting distance of Aberdeen , Finzean has become a desirable area in which to live. Although this has made houses less affordable for local families, an enlightened approach by the estate regarding the sale of building plots has helped to limit this effect. Finzean is now a small but thriving community, with a primary school attended by about 50 children, a parish church that was extended and refurbished in , an award-winning community hall that was rebuilt in and community woodlands that provide attractive walks for local residents.
Apart from the farms and estates, local businesses include a shop and post office, a farm shop and tearoom, a furniture restorer and cabinetmaker, a shortbread manufacturer and a number of building contractors and self-employed tradespeople. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
