Recently, the grounds of St Kentigern's have echoed to the sound of chainsaws and sanders. Ross Macneil, based in Northumberland, has been here for a week carving six large figures for the Ballater Community Nativity. The project is supported by the churches in Ballater, and is funded by a variety of local organisations, including Marr Area Partnership, the Chiels, Ballater Royal Deeside, and the Rotary Club of Aboyne and Upper Deeside. The seven larch trees were donated by Braemar Castle / Invercauld Estate and also Balmoral Estate.

The Nativity scene will be displayed on Church Green in Ballater from the last weekend in November until Epiphany.
