These two towns are separated only by a few hundred yards, and both are gene-
rally included under the name of Garmouth. They are situated at the mouth of the
Spey, and have a large trade in shipbuilding ; but, since harbours have been so much
improved along the coast, and railways formed, and more especially since a diversion
took place in the outlet of the river, in 1860, the shipping and general trade of the
place have considerably decreased.
