Welcome, New Pitsligo is a small village set in the heart of Aberdeenshire and currently has a population of 1060 people. It stands on the eastern slope of Turlundie Hill, 650 feet above sea level and was founded by Sir William Forbes in 1787. In the next eighteen pages you will find photographs both old and new of New Pitsligo and of the people who lived and worked there. There are also photos with  stories attached to them, which I am sure you will find very interesting. Some of the  stories will tell you of the varied shops and businesses that once were in the village. I hope that you enjoy looking at this site and if any one has any photos, stories or information that you may like to add, please let me know via the contact button.
