main image Deer dyke, Kincardine Park, Kincardine, Kincardineshire
The deer dyke (or park pale) surrounded and enclosed the royal hunting park at Kincardine.

The park may have been created by King William I (reigned 1165-1214). Besides the main pale, there seems to have been a later extension to the north.

In the 14th century, the park was leased out, which may account for signs of cultivation and building within the park.
