Located at the heart of Speyside, this small village, otherwise known as Charlestown, may be noted for its salmon fishing and shortbread but it is world-famous for its single malt whisky produced since the early 19th century in a local distillery founded by John and James Grant. The oldest structure is a packhorse bridge which crosses the Lour burn.
