River Spey at Grantown-on-Spey, Scotland

This evening, I am reporting on Grantown-on-Spey (pop 2000)  which was founded in 1766 when it was established as a discrete ,planned town (unusual for its day in Scotland) by James Grant. The town grew and prospered and today its attractive silver granite buildings are home to a wide number of shops, guest houses, hotels, restaurants and families.
