    The town was founded in 1765 by the young clan chief, The 'Good' Sir James Grant of Grant who planned the new town to improve the lives of his tenants. Castle Grant is a handsome building one mile north of the town and many other fine Georgian and Victorian dwellings, churches and houses grace The Square and the avenues.
