  • Sheet 7.16 Elgin 1904 - published 1990, introduction by Mike Seton

    King David built a castle at Elgin in 1150 and in 1224 it became the site for a cathedral. It developed into a seat of learning and the principal town in Moray; Defoe called it "a very agreeable place to live in". By 1911 the population had risen to 8,250, its growth helped by the railway - the railway station is prominent on this map. The ruins of the castle are just on the left side of the map and we include part of the map to the north, to give coverage of the old cathedral and Bishopmill.
