This evening, my focus is on the small town of Aberlour (full name Charlestown of Aberlour) which sits on the banks of the River Spey between Inverness and Aberdeen in the north of Scotland.

Aberlour is famous for two products: whisky and shortbread. There are some 50 whisky distilleries within a 15 mile radius of the town and Walkers have a major plant in the town producing the famous shortbread. The town has its own Aberlour Distillery.

Here is the Aberlour Hotel

Aberlour Church and War Memorial

Main Street, Aberlour


River Spey at Aberlour. Famous for salmon fishing.


Overall, a pleasant enough small country town. A useful stop when touring the whisky distilleries.
