Highland Folk Museum - 33

We have now stepped back to the early 1700s.

We are in the 'Baile Gean' Township. This is based on the original larger Badenoch settlement of Easter Raitts, situated high up the Spey Valley above the current hamlet of Lynchat. Raitts, the principal settlement prior to the 1790s 'planned town' of Kingussie, was on a pack horse and drove route that crossed the River Spey to the equivalent township of Ruthven on the south side.
