V^RIMOND is a parish lying an equal distance from the town of
Fraserburgh and Peterhead, upon the coast of Buchan, with a front
to the German Ocean, of about three miles in breadth, which declines
to a point, inland, at the distance of rather more than five miles.
Rattray Head is on the coast, a very dangerous promontory. Near
the east end of tho lake Stratlibog is a small hill, called the Castle
hill, where Comyn, Earl of Buchan, had a castle. Abont a hundred
years ago. there was a communication between the loch of Strath-
bog and the sea ; and a harbour at the east end, close to the castle,
Jor small craft : in one night the mouth of the harbour was filled up by
the drifting of sand, and the communication has been interrupted
ever since. On this harbour formerly stood the burgh of Rattray.
There is a ruin of a small chapel near the site of the old bm*gh of
Rattray, said to have been erected by the Earl of Buchan, about the
year 1280.
The parish of Lonmay has about four miles of seacoast, is ten
miles long, and nearly four broad. The soil is various, but generally
fertile ; and in this parish, about fom- miles n.e. is the fishing vil-
lage of St. Combs. A considerable branch of the river Ugie passes
through the parish, which abounds in limestone, '

Rathen parish is about four miles distant from Fraserburgh, about
eight miles long, at a medium of two in breadth ; it possesses two
creeks, on which are built the fishing villages of Cairnbulg and
Inverailochy. There are two old castles in ruins in those villages,
which seem to have been places of considerable strength. This
palish is destitute of growing timber, though large masses of oak
are occasionally dug up fi'om morasses.
St. Fergus, a village and parish, though locally situate on tho
coast of Aberdeenshii-e, is in that part of the district of Buchan
which belongs to the county of Banff. It is bounded on the east by
the North Sea, and on the south by the small river Ugie, which
separates it fi-om Peterhead ; the village is five miles distant from
that town, and thirteen fi'om Fraserburgh. The great Field-Mar-
shall Keith, of whom a statue in bronze has been presented to the
town of Peterhead by King William I. of Prussia, was born in 1696,
at Inverugie Castle, the ruins of which, in a bend of the river, still
attract the notice of the traveller.
