Inverurie, Aberdeenshire

The Scottish town of Inverurie sits in the Don Valley at the centre of Aberdeenshire. Inverurie straddles the River Don and the River Ury, and is only 4 miles (6.4 km) from the imposing and famous mountain of Bennachie. Inverurie town centre is slightly triangular and is dominated by the grand Inverurie "Town Hall" built in the late 1800s. In the middle of Inverurie town square is the Inverurie War Memorial capped by a lone Gordon Highlander looking out over the town. The part of the town south of the River Don is actually called Port Elphinstone it is however common to hear the title "Inverurie" used to refer to both Inverurie and Port Elphinstone as a single town.

Inverurie is said to have been founded by David of Huntingdon, Earl of the Garioch, brother of Malcolm IV, great-great-grandfather of Robert the Bruce who defeated the Comyns nearby at the Battle of Barra on Christmas Eve 1307. The religious foundation of Inverurie pre-dates this by five centuries with the establishment of the Kirk of Inverurie now known as St Andrew's Parish Church.

The earliest known Inverurie town charter dates from 1558, with its modern development taking place after the building of the Aberdeenshire Canal linking Port Elphinstone with Aberdeen Harbour in 1806. Following the North Sea "Oil Boom" of the last quarter of the 20th century the town developed into much of its present form.

The nearby Easter Aquorthies and the stone circle at Newseat recumbent stone circle are fine examples of the rich history of the North East of Scotland, ancient monuments dating back to the 3rd Millennium BC. There have been three well known battles in the town: The Battle of Inverurie (1308), the Battle of Harlaw (24 July 1411) between Donald of Islay, Lord of the Isles (MacDonald) and an army commanded by Alexander Stewart, Earl of Mar; and the Battle of Inverurie (1745) during the Jacobite Rebellion of that year.
