May have been just to the north of Milltimber in heavily wooded area also known at Countesswells.
The likely targets would have been bridges over the River Dee. This would be a natural barrier for invasion troops trying to head North or South. The railway from Aberdeen to Ballater passes through Milltimber which may also have been a target.
Given the close proximity to Milltimber, the names have been assumed based on the River Dee splitting the areas. Please also see Maryculter Patrol report for names.
