BennachieOLDMELDRUM, (properly Old Meldrum before the Post Office interfered, but known locally as "Meldrum") is rightly famed for its sense of community. Once settled here people are very reluctant to leave. This Baron Burgh was the former local authority headquarters for Fortmartine and Garioch and the centre of the settlement is designated a conservation area, steeped in history.

Meldrum AcademyThe town with the "village" atmosphere continues to grow and recently enjoyed a significant expansion to the Primary School and the opening of a new community school: Meldrum Academy. There are numerous clubs, societies and activities for children.
