    Age 3
    Being one of the two smallest railways in 1923, the Great North of Scotland Railway carried its first passengers from Kittybrewster to Huntly in 1854. In the 1880s the railways were refurbished to give express services to the suburban parts in Aberdeen. There were junctions with the Highland Railway established to help connect Aberdeenshire, Banffshire and Moray counties. The railway started to deliver goods from the North Sean and from the whisky distilleries in Speyside. With the implementation of bus services and the purchase of the British Railway the Great North of Scotland Railway was discontinued.

    Name Meaning

    Scottish and northern Irish: Anglicized form of Gaelic Mac Neachtain, a patronymic from the personal name Neachtan, a name of the god of water in Irish mythology, which is cognate with Latin Neptunus ‘Neptune’, the Roman sea-god. Neachtan was the name of an Irish saint, but in Ireland such names were not usually given to ordinary individuals and it appears that the surname originated in Scotland. Compare McCracken .History: The traditional form of this name as a Scottish clan name is MacNaughten. The clan is associated with a traditional seat at Dunderave Castle on Loch Fyne.
