 Friends of Grampian Stones - Ancient Regality of Inverurie & The Garioch
Strategically, Inverurie seems oddly situated in a flood-plain surrounded by rising hills overshadowed by the classical mountain of Bennachie.
When, 5000 years ago, the Garioch's first farmers chose to settle, grow food, protect their families from bear, boar and wolves, build sacred stone circles to measure and celebrate the seasons, they were not thinking of strategy, but a sacred sense of place.
What became the royal burgh of Inverurie, literally 'at the mouth or meeting of the Urie', was chosen because of its massive water resource and rich land, but also because it was a safe crossing.
