Old  Deer: A local scene

My husband Brian and I visited Old Deer in August 2008 for two days and stayed with the Rhinds at The Old Bank House B&B - lovely!
I recently came across this website looking for old photos of Pitfour mansion and was delighted to find such wonderful old postcards, photos and information.
Brian's gg-grandfather Robert JAMIESON (born Stuartfield 1849, died 1940 while living at South Lodge, Pitfour) was a gamekeeper on the Pitfour Estate. We were fortunate to find Robert's residences of Quithel and South Lodge and to visit the site of the demolished mansion, but did not find Robert's residence at Den o' Howie Lodge. I see Den o' Howie as a geographical place name on the Ordnance Survey - does anyone have more information about Den o' Howie as a place/farm/residence?
Robert's youngest daughter--my husband's great grannie Robina JAMIESON--born Old Deer 1877, moved to Lincolnshire, married and emigrated to Canada in 1916 with five children. We are not sure what happened to her siblings (all born Old Deer): Jane born 1862, Anne born 1863, Isabella born 1866 and Joan born 1868.
One may have married John MORRISON, listed as Robert's son-in-law & informant for Robert's 1940 death.
I would appreciate any information about/photos of Den o' Howie and am glad to share family history information.
Many thanks,
