Colquhonny House Hotel
Set in the rolling foothills of the Cairngorm Mountains, the 220 – year old Colquhonnie Hotel overlooks the Aberdeenshire Don Valley from a South – facing, elevated site. The hotel shares this lovely viewpoint with the Sixteenth century ruins of the unfinished, Colquhonnie Castle, and the Historic Lonach Hall, home of ‘The Lonach Highlanders’. The hotel started life off as a Coaching Inn serving the route from Deeside over the hills to the valley of the Spey. In those days it took several days to complete the journey by coach. Today you can reach both destinations from the hotel in little over an hour. The hotel incorporates MAK’s restaurant and our award-winning chef, which is open all year round, serving both traditional meals cooked from local and continental sources to delight and tickle your taste buds. The hotel has been recently awarded the prestigious Green Tourism Award, and can boast a varied selection of wildlife, so if you are looking for peace and tranquillity then look no further.

History Of Reids of Rinmore in Glenbuchat
The earliest confirmed record I have for my branch of the Reids, is the birth, in Glenbuchat, of William Reid on 5th March 1727. William was born to a James Reid, unfortunately I have not been able to trace a mother’s name. Also to confuse the issue, a William Reid was also born to a Archibald Reid and Elspet Toshach. (these as far as I can tell, are not related). William went on to marry Anna William on 11th August 1747 and father another James Reid, born 30th April 1757.

The Hays of Glenbuchat
Welcome to my web site! It contains what I know about Glenbuchat and my father's ancestors in Scotland. Ever since the seventeenth century they lived continuously at a small "fermtoune" or "clachan" called Upperton in the Parish of Glenbuchat (later called Glenbucket and then back to Glenbuchat), Aberdeenshire. They married into families in this parish and also neighboring parishes of Strathdon, Towie, Leochel Cushnie, Mortlach, and Kirkmichael.

Upperton demise-of-a-strathdon-fermtoun
The little group of ruins of what was once the fermtoun of Upperton in Glenbuchat by Strathdon has recently been designated a listed site by Historic Scotland. The site has a long history dating back to the 1696 Poll Book which recorded Upperton as one of 14 fermtouns or clachans in the parish of Glenbucket (as it was spelt then). JOHN NISBET was Professor of Education at Aberdeen University from 1963 to 1988. His interests include orienteering, golf, hill-walking and even occasional rock-climbing, as well as amateur archaeology. This is an article from the September 2007 edition of Leopard Magazine.
Wanderings in the Highlands of Banff and Aberdeen Shires, with trifles in verse (1881)
The Wanderings which form the greater part of this volume have all, with one exception, appeared at different periods during the past six years in the newspaper press. They were fairly well received by the public when read separately, which encourages the hope that they will be equally fortunate when presented in the present form. When first written, I had no idea whatever of forming a collection. The walks were undertaken for pleasure and recreation, and to make an acquaintance with the districts. [ tried to describe their physical features, their modes of agriculture, and anything else that came under my observation, as faithfully as possible. Taking the Braes of Glenlivet as a centre, all the surrounding districts have been personally visited, and by roads but little known to the outsider. J. G. PHILLIPS. 1881
