ULLEN is a royal bm-gh, a maritime town, and the capital of the
parish of its name, 191 miles n.n.e. of Edinburgh, 22 e. oi Elgin,
13 n.e. of Fochabers, U w. of Banff, and 6 w. of Portsoy; situated
on a commanding eminence, overlooking the Moray Frith. Until
within the last forty years it consisted of three independent and
distinct towns— the New Town, near the sea, with a harbour; the
Auld Town, more inland, and adjoining to the Parks of Cullen
House; and the Fish Town, a low village, exclusively inhabited by
fishermen and their families. The Auld Town no longer exists, and
the park of the Earl of Seafield occupies its site. To this noble-
man the town is indebted for those improvements and modern
erections which have conferred upon it tliat aspect of neatness and
respectabihty so apparent, and raised it to the rank of the third
town in the shii-e. The curing of fish and its exportation is carried
on by several of the inhabitants. There are also branches of the
Union Banking Company, and the North of Scotland Banking Com-
pany, and a good inn. The acting magistrates are the provost, two
baillies, with a treasurer, dean of guild, and thirteen councillors.
A justice of peace small debt court is held the fii-st Tuesday in
every month. The burgh joins with Banff, Elgin, Inverurie, Kin-
tore and Peterhead in retm-ning a member to prfrhament. The
gentleman at present sitting is Mountstuart Elpliinstone Grant
Puff, Esq., who has been the representative since December, 1357.
A very elegant temple of stone was some years since erected upon
an elevated spot of ground, very near the sea, ami not far from
Cullen House. This latter is an ancient and u-regular edifice ; the
interior is, however, furnished with modern taste, and adorned with
paintifigs )>y the most emiueut ma^tei-g. CoUeu stream passes
under the south walls; and on the opposite side are the park and
pleasure grounds, which are connected with the house by an elegant
arch of eighty-four feet span. Not far distant are the ruins of a
dweUing in which Elizabeth, Queen of Robert Bruce, is said to
have died. An eminence, called Castle Hill, at the western ex-
tremity of the town, is the site of an ancient fortification, which
must formerly have been a place of great strength. An almost per-
pendicular rock renders it inaccessible from the north, and it is
surrounded in every other dii-ection by a deep ditch. It is supposed
to have been destroyed by fire, as vitrified stones have been fre-
quently extracted from beneath the surface. Fairs are held on the
third Friday in May, and the second Friday in November (new
style). In 1871 the entire parish of Cullen had a population of
3,215. and the town 2,056.
Deskfoed is a parish, lying between Cullen and Grange, five
miles in length by three in breadth. The places of worship are a
church of the Establishment and a Free church; there is also a
public school in the village. Population in 1871, 972.
Portkkockie is a fishing village, within the royalty of Cullen,
in the parish of Rathven, 3 miles w.n.w. from Cullen, and 4 miles
E. from Portessie. It is situated in Moray Frith, and contains a
Free church, a chapel of ease, and a public school. Population in
1871, 1,235.
FiNDOCHTY is also a small fishing village, in the same parish as
Portknockie, 3 miles v;. from Cullen. The only place of worship is
a United Presbyterian church. There is also a pubhc school in the
village. Population, 812,
