Hatton, Aberdeenshire

Hatton Mill, once a water mill, now converted into a pub

Hatton (occasionally Hatton of Cruden) is a village in Aberdeenshire, Scotland[1] that lies on the A90 road, approximately equidistant from both Ellon and Peterhead.

It has a biscuit factory that was once called Simmers - it was Hatton's only claim to fame, as it supplied biscuits to such upmarket shops as Marks and Spencers. However, it was purchased by McVities and then acquired by Murdoch Allan and Sons. It also has a shop, a village hall, a primary school and small park.


There is considerable evidence of early human habitation in the vicinity, most notably by the existence of the ancient Catto Long Barrow and numerous tumuli nearby.[2]
