Research on the Colonists
Over the last few months the Bailies have been funding Jennifer Fagen from the University of Aberdeen to research into the Bennachie Colonists. The Bennachie Colonists were people who lived on the slopes of Bennachie in the 19th century; the ruins of their homes are close to the Bennachie Visitor Centre. So far this work has been going well and a synopsis of her report will be eventually on this web site. In the meantime please contact the Bailies if you have any stories/anecdotes about the colonists.
