Closest guess so far but you're a bit too far east.

The place you are looking for is not as populous as Aberdeen.

You won't find my box there either. It won't surprise you to learn that you've gone too far! You now need to head away from Aberdeen.

By box is between Banchory and Peterculter.

I looked in Craithes first, just down the road, where I was delighted to find a road called Slug Lane.

OK, I will post this one for suggestions, then I have a few things to do:
This one is in a gorgeous location, and will go on the pretty postbox thread when we're done with it here:

    Baton, of course.

    Just behind the photo is a level crossing, and the rail trip down the Derwent Valley is beautiful, if you ever get the chance.
    In the picture, you can just make out the ruins of Kirkham Abbey across the river.
