Opposite it on the other side of the main road is the kirkyard with the ruins of the pre-Reformation church, and here too the Lour Burn is spanned by the ruined arch of the old highway to the kirk. About l mile south approached by a path along the Lour is the Linn of Ruthrie, a fine waterfall in a Wooded dell. Aberlours mile long, tree-shaded High Street has an attractive square and village green near its west end, from which a road leads past the station to the banks of the Spey, here spanned by a picturesque suspension foot-bridge.
