Burshead is the largest town in the parish. Its population in 1861 was 1099 ; males,
4S5 ; females, 614. The sole proprietor is Wm. Young of Burghead. It is a Burgh
of Barony, the Baron Bailie being Wm. Grigor, writer, Elgin. It is situated on a bold
headland jutting out into the Moray Firth. The streets are regularly laid out, and
the greater part of the houses are well built. The trade of the burgh is considerable,
and it is expected that it will be increased by the extension of the railway to it, and
by improvements on the harbour, which, it is understood, are about to be commenced.
