Morayshire - Aberlour

Aberlour is 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.
