Advie  Moray


In 1882-4, Frances Groome's Ordnance Gazetteer of Scotland described Advie like this:

Advie, a barony in Cromdale parish, Elginshire, on the right balk of the river Spey, and on the Strathspey branch of the Great North of Scotland railway, 8 miles NE of Grantown. It has a post office of Advie Station, under Ballindalloch, an Established mission church, and a public school, which, with accommodation for 90 children, had (1879) an average attendance of 37, and a grant of £32, 3s. ...

The barony of Advie, on the right side of the Spey, and the barony Tulchen on the left side, anciently were a parish, now united with Cromdale, and they belonged to the Earl of Fife, passed in the 15th century to the Ballindalloch family, and were eventually sold to Brigadier Alexander Grant.
