Alexander is very important in the history of Macduff. In 1699 Alexander purchased “Doune” (ie Macduff after it’s name was changed in 1783). “Antigua” is not a Caribbean link, but part of the history that has resulted in the great town of Macduff!
This story was prompted by the finding of a rare postcard as shown above. The Royal Army Medical Corps used to hold an annual camp, and Banff – specifically Canal Park – was the location in 1912. The Banff skyline really hasn’t changed that much!
