Subject notes
As roads were widened to accommodate lorries and heavy farm machinery, some roads and bridges, possibly dating from the great agricultural improvements of the late 18th century, became disused. Aberdeenshire developed a reputation for grass-fed beef cattle, especially the famous Aberdeen-Angus breed. Scotch beef continues to attract a premium price overseas and the description 'Scotch' is now protected by regulation.
