the name of a place in Moray, Scotland, 12 miles south of Elgin on
the road to Grantown. A burn (stream), a tributary of the River
Spey, and surroundingparish, are both named Aberlour, but the name
is most commonly used in reference to the village which straddles
the stream and flanks the Spey – although the full name of the
village is Charlestown of Aberlour.
A site noted as Abirlaur is shown in this location on maps in Joan
Blaeu's Atlas of Scotland, from 1654. The current village,
Charlestown of Aberlour, was "founded by Mr. Charles Grant of
Elchies in 1812 - with the name of Charlestown of Aberlour after his
son Charles." It is commonly referred to simply as Aberlour. A grant
of land from Charles Grant senior feued 100 plots along the south
bank of the river and saw the start of the High Street (formerly
Main Street) and parish church. The three locations are close enough
in definition, for there to be little distinction between them. The
town was granted its feu charter in 1814 and began to operate its
own markets. Whisky was a major industry even then and once the 1823
licensing act was passed and a longer warehousing process introduced
it began to take on the more mature characteristics that we are
familiar with today.
