This web site would not be complete if maps of Auchallater and Ballochbuie were not included. Auchallater is located on the south side of the town of Braemar, at the point where the Callater burn runs into the river Clunie. These maps include many of the place names given in the 1866 file of farms occupied by families related to the Auchallater and Ordachoy McHardys.
The name Auchallater comes from the Gaelic Auch-choille-dur, and means field of the wooded stream. Ballochbuie comes from the Gaelic words bealach and buidhe. Bealach means a pass or gap in the hills, or in this instance a stream crossing, and is pronounced b-yal-ugh. Buidhe means yellow.
