Kinnethmont (Kennethmont), Aberdeenshire

The parochial board of Kinnethmont, or Kennethmont, erected a parish poorhouse or almshouse in around 1854. It was locally administered rather than operating as a statutory poorhouse under the central Board of Supervision.

The building was situated at the south side of Kinnethmont village.
