Strichen Town Information

A small, recumbent stone circle lies in the local park and acts as a keen reminder of the area’s prehistoric past. Many ancient artefacts have been found here, particularly in the vicinity of Mormond Hill.

The village of Strichen was, however, only created in 1764 by the local landowners, the Frasers, who needed homes for their estate workers. They even offered a £100 reward to the first man who completed his house. Most of the village is an ‘Outstanding Conservation Area’.
