History

Banffshire, former county, northeastern Scotland; the North Sea port of Banff was the county town. The region remained largely Roman Catholic after the Reformation (16th century) and suffered greatly in the ensuing struggles. During the English Revolution (17th century), Banffshire was a Royalist stronghold. Located in the area are the ruins of several medieval castles and the 12th-century church of Gamrie. In 1975 Banffshire became part of the newly created Grampian Region (see Grampian).
