Archiestown is a small village in Moray, Scotland, named in honour of its founder Sir Archibald Grant of Monymusk.[1] It is a typical 18th century planned village with a grid street-plan and spacious square. Originally intended as a weaving centre, it is better known for the nearby distilleries of Cardhu, Knockando, Tamdhu and The Macallan.
