Carron  Banffshire


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

Carron, a locality, partly in Inveraven parish, but chiefly in Aberlour parish, Banffshire. It comprises a hill, a daugh, and a railway station. The hill, on the mutual border of the two parishes, rises immediately from the right bank of the Spey to a height of 967 feet above sea-level, and is separated by a narrow valley from Ben Rinnes. ...

The daugh forms a continuation of the valley between the hill and Ben Rinnes; lies to the SW of Kinermony Daugh; and is separated there from by a very deep ravine, traversed by a mountain rivulet. The station, on the Strathspey section of the Great North of Scotland, is 5¾ miles WSW of Craigellachie Junction, under which it has a post and telegraph office. Near it is Carron House.
