In olden times Fyvie in Aberdeenshire was the site of a castle, the political centre of Formartine and a Royal Burgh. The Battle of Fyvie took place in 1642. When peace returned, the Gordon family began to develop the village, which was consolidated by the 1804 turnpike road and the arrival of the railway in 1857. This illustrated history shows a peaceful Fyvie from the Edwardian period onwards, with a mixture of general views, village scenes and old shopfronts, all knowledgeably described by the local author. Among the many photos included are St Katherine’s shop and post office, Fordoun Bridge, Mill of Milton, the Club House, Lewes, Fyvie Old and New Schools, the Cottage Hospital, the Mill of Tifty and Fyvie Castle and estate buildings. The book ends with Woodhead and Gight.
