Old photograph of Huntly Square, Aberdeenshire taken in 1903. Aberdenshire, Scotland

 

Huntly Square is surrounded by fine buildings many dating back to the first half of the 18th century and is with out doubt been the focal point for the inhabitants of Strathbogie and the surrounding area over the centuries. Originally a market Square by the end of the 18th century 'The Square' was to see the livestock markets move to the edges of the town, with other forms of markets dieing out. However the Feein’ Markets a traditional country ‘Hiring Fair’ held originally for the employment of the local farm labour was not to end until the onset of the Second World War. 

The Square has marked and still marks many local and national events such as coronations, parades, galas, fetes and ‘Hogmany’ still an important event in Huntly. More recently the square was to play an important role in the Gordon 2000 celebrations which, saw thousands of visitors many from all over the world with connections to Huntly visit this vibrant little town.
