Strathbogie  Aberdeenshire


In 1882-4, Frances Groome's Ordnance Gazetteer of Scotland described Strathbogie like this:

Strathbogie, the vale of the river Bogie on the NW border of Aberdeenshire, and a presbytery partly also in Banffshire. The presbytery, in the synod of Moray, comprehends the quoad civilia parishes of Bellie, Botriphnie, Cairney, Gartly, Glass, Grange, Huntly, Keith, Marnoch, Mortlach, Rhynie, and Rothiemay, and the quoad sacra parish of Newmill. ...

It figured prominently in the events precurrent to the formation of the Free Church in 1843. The Free Church also has a presbytery of Strathbogie, with churches at Bellie, Botriphnie, Cairney, Gartly, Glass, Grange, Huntly, Keith, New Marnoch, and Rothiemay. See Dr John Stuart's Extracts from the Presbytery Book of Strath bogie (Spalding Club, 1843).
