High Street, Grantown-on-Spey, Moray

This postcard is of the High Street in Grantown-on-Spey, around 1926. This Upper Speyside town was founded in 1766 by the local laird, Sir James Grant. He laid out his new town in open country at the crossing point of two major roads. Displaced tenants from his estates were housed in the town and much of the original layout is still in existence today
