History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
The most famous event in Alford's history came in 1645 when troops under the Earl of Montrose routed a smaller army under the command of General Baillie. A more modern note is struck by the Grampian Transport Museum, which traces the history of all forms of transportation in the north east of Scotland.
Six miles away is Craigievar Castle, a Scottish baronial mansion on a grand scale.
