Byth  Aberdeenshire


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

Byth, a hamlet, a mansion, and a village, in King Edward parish, Aberdeenshire. The hamlet lies on the NE border of the parish, 8 miles NE of Turriff. The mansion stands ¾ mile SW of the hamlet, was built in 1593 by Deacon Forbes of Byth, and has been modernised and enlarged. The village stands 1¾ mile SSE of the hamlet, bears the name of Newbyth, and will be separately noticed under that name.
