CAIRNBULG, a village, in the parish of Rathen, district of Deer, county of Aberdeen, 3 miles (N. N. E.) from Rathen; containing 406 inhabitants. This is a fishing village, situated on the north-eastern coast of Fraserburgh bay, called Cairnbulg Point, and closely adjoining Inverallochie, another village, of which the inhabitants are also fishers. Here are the ruins of an old castle, which seems to have been of considerable strength, and was formerly the seat of the predecessors of Lord Saltoun. It was called Philorth, until sold by Sir Alexander Fraser, in 1613, to Fraser of Durris, when its name was changed to Cairnbulg, Sir Alexander transferring that of Philorth to another mansion, about a mile westward, which has ever since been the residence of the lords Saltoun.
