Cowie
   COWIE, a village, in the parish of Fetteresso, county of Kincardine, 1 mile (N.) from Stonehaven; containing 174 inhabitants. This village is situated at the mouth of the river Cowie, which falls into a bay of that name, forming a small and commodious harbour; and is chiefly inhabited by fishermen, who, during the season, are also engaged in the herring-fisheries on the coast. The principal fish taken here are haddocks, of which great numbers are cured, and sent by the Aberdeen steamers to the London market; cod, ling, and various other fish are also found in abundance. Eight boats are employed, each having a crew of five men. On the summit of a rock overlooking the bay, are the remains of an ancient castle which, upon very doubtful authority, is supposed by some writers to have been originally built by Malcolm Canmore.
