On Christmas Day 1157, King Malcolm IV granted the lands of Innes and
Nether Urquhart to Berowald the Fleming. Berowald's descendants became
the clan Innes and owned Orton from that day until William Duff, later
first Earl of Fife, bought the estate. Orton Estate has remained in his
family ever since. Orton is not a town, or even a village, but a community
which includes Orton Estate.
