Ballindalloch  Banffshire

 

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

Ballindalloch, a hamlet and an estate in Inveravon parish, Banffshire. The hamlet lies at the confluence of the Avon and the Spey, adjacent to the Craigellachie and Boat of Garten branch of the Great North of Scotland railway, 12 miles WSW of Craigellachie; and has a station on the railway, and a post office, with money order, savings' bank, and telegraph departments. ...


The estate belongs to Sir George Macpherson-Grant (b. 1839; suc. 1850), third Bart. since 1838, M. P. for Elginshire since 1879, and owner of 7848 acres in the shire, valued at £2476 per annum; it has extensive woods with some noble trees, and boasts great numbers of roe deer. The mansion on it, Ballindalloch Castle, was formerly a fine specimen of the old Scottish fortalice; comprised a square building, flanked by three circular towers; and about 1845, was much enlarged in the castellated style, so as to be rendered a very splendid mansion.

The location is that of Ballindalloch Castle.
