Great Website! My fiance and his family are from Elgin and we are getting married in Elgin Cathedral in Sept. We picked Elgin as an alternative to Aberdeen - something different and not too far to travel to. Can anyone recommend a florist and a hairdresser/beautician to me, please. We are living in the Middle East just now but will be back to Scotland in May to finalise wedding plans, thanks. Keep up the good work.

I have two old photographs of my now deceased mothers. One shows five young airmen (H314 on the back) and the other a single airman K514 taken by Northern Photo Services ( T. Robertson ) of 23 High St, in Elgin sometime around the second world war. Anybody knows how I could find some information about them I would be more than grateful.

Hello. I recently recieved an heirloom of my great-great grandfather's. It's a medal he won in 1879 from the Elgin Poultry, Pigeon, and Cage Bird Club. So I thought I'd check out just where my family decended from (in the US now). Maybe some day I will actually make it there.

On Sunday 9th March 2003, two Aussies were driving from Edinburgh to Inverness, via Aberdeen and Huntly. We saw your awe-inspiring cathedral on the skyline and managed to find our way in through the roadworks detours. It was quite late in the day (we'd left Huntly after 4pm), but one of the highlights of our trip was spending a little time admiring these majestic ruins. I found your Website when I was searching for a little historic background to go with my photos and put into my trip diary. A good information site for me, thank you.

Tricia Cook-Bosnell Saturday 3rd May 2003, 9:01pm
Looking for anyone with connections to the Hesketh or Grant surnames in the Elgin area.

Thank you so much for such a wonderful and informative site. I hope to visit your beautiful city soon.

Camilla Dallas Tuesday 11th Mar 2003, 4:43am
I was following up on the ancestry of the Dallas name, when I came across this web site. Our surname was derived from the barony of the Lordship of Dallas, an extensive tract of land comprised of 17 thousand acres lying within the Shire of Moray,...or Elgin, Scotland. Referred to as "Strath Dallas". The most northerly point was 8 1/4 miles S.SW of Elgin, and 5 miles S. SE of Fowles. The river Lossie ran through it. These site photos are beautiful.., and the information on the city is wonderful. Thank you. It is my wish to visit this lovely area...someday.

John Stewart Thursday 6th Mar 2003, 12:08am

Elgin is the best place in Moray for a great night out. I enjoy coming here every weekend. The people are friendly and up for a good laugh.

douglas duncan Sunday 2nd Mar 2003, 4:12pm
I can find no mention of Tourism or Accommodation on your site - often one of the first things a visitor looks for. Do you plan to add links to these items? Douglas Duncan Elgin Holiday House Member AGTB & Visitscotland

John Lewis Videlo Saturday 1st Mar 2003, 7:41pm
Greetings from sunny Guernsey! Good luck with the site. It is so good that we can keep in touch with 'home' through the internet.
