Aberlour, Moray. This burgh on the right bank of the Spey is properly called Charleston of Aberlour from the name of its founder, Charles Grant of Wester Elchies, who laid out the original village in 1812. But it stands on a vety ancient church site dedicated to St Drostan, and the original name of Aberlour parish was Skirdustan “Drostan's slice”. Drostan's Well, surmounted by a simple cross, survives in the grounds of the local distillery. Opposite it on the other side of the main road is the kirkyard with the ruins of the pre-Reformation church, and here too the Lour Burn is spanned by the ruined arch of the old highway to the kirk. About 1 mile South, approached by a path along the Lour, is the Linn of Ruthrie, a fine waterfall in a wooded deli. Aberlour's mile-long, tree-shaded High Street has an attractive square and village green near its West end, from which a road leads past the station to the banks of the Spey, here spanned by a picturesque suspension foot-bridge. The famous orphanage, founded in 1875, was closed some years ago; much of the site is being used for the new Speyside High School. The Church of St Margaret is very much worth a visit for the carving on its pillars of flowers, fruit and animals in pre-Raphaelite profusion. About ½ mile East is the neo-classic pile of Aberlour House, now a preparatory school for Gordonstoun. Overlooked by the graceful cone of Ben Rinnes on the South, and by Ben Aigan on the North East, and surrounded by finely wooded, hilly country, Aberlour, with its fishing on the Spey, has a situation of great beauty.
