Reflections of a Speyside Parish

By James Thomson ( @Moray and Nairn Newspaper Co. 1902 Edition)

Some years ago a teaching colleague George Grieve gave me a copy of this book on Aberlour which I read and returned.  I found a copy recently and decided to attempt a series of Podcasts on the village where I grew up.  Indeed I remember George, when he was a Mason in Aberlour, helping fit the window of the Butcher's shop which my father owned.

Thank you George.

I will add chapters to the mp3 podcasts as I can.
