BRAND NEW

AFTER SOME WEEKS OF CLOSURE the NEW 'STEPPIES' APPEAR at the 'STROUPIE BRAE'

On a barren moor which was the ground at the top of the " Stroupie Brae", in 1646, there ensued a
challenge to fight between Gen. Baillie (Covenanters) and James Graham (Royalists), the outcome
ending in Graham retreating to Alford followed by Baillie where a battle took place and ending
with Baillie being defeated. Bounded on one side by the Turner Memorial Hospital grounds and
the "Cuthil" on the other, the "Stroupie Brae" and the " Steppies" were brilliant places for
sledging in the winter but you had to be aware of the now removed railings in the middle.
From a vantage point on the "Steppies" looking towards the Auld Brig' you have a wonderful
view across the Old Cemetery towards Fife-Keith with Earlsmount , the 'Factory Shop' and
the now privately owned Keith/Dufftown railway line all in full view, with Strathmill Distillery in
the distance up the line.
