Description

Situated at the mouth of the River Deveron on the Moray Firth, the Royal and Ancient Burgh of Banff grew up round a royal castle. Most of the historic town is Georgian, filled with the townhouses of the gentry who came from miles around to the county town. It was Jacobite and lived by smuggling, with two earls, Findlater and Fife, struggling for dominance. Banff's long heritage is evident in landmarks that date from the eighteenth century and before. The later story of Victorian Banff is very different. The town prospered through the herring trade, and was known for its wealth of shops and civic pride. This diverse history and Banff Preservation & Heritage Society's battles against thoughtless demolitions in the 1960s are presented in this unique volume of old and modern photographs. By exploring what was lost, but also what was saved, Banff is seen in a new light.
