DOWNIES, a village, in the parish of Banchory-Devenick, county of Kincardine, 8 miles (S.) from Aberdeen; containing 122 inhabitants. It is a small fishing-village, on the eastern coast, and lying in the extreme south point of the parish. There is a very convenient cove here for fishing-boats, of which several belong to the place, each manned with four or five hands, employed in white-fishing, and sometimes visiting the Moray Frith in the herring season.
