History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
The prosperity of Dallas has long depended on slate mining. Slate from Dallas was used in a number of prominent public buildings, including the Tolbooth at Elgin.
The village is fairly recent; it was laid out in the Victorian period. The manor is Dallas Lodge, built in 1688 for Sir Robert Gordon, who intended to create a fully circular building, but the circle was never finished, and the house remains a semi-circle.
