  • Morayshire (schottisch-gälisch Siorrachd Mhoireibh) ist eine traditionelle Grafschaft im Norden Schottlands am Moray Firth. Früher war auch die Bezeichnung Elginshire üblich. Verwaltungssitz war die Stadt Elgin. Ursprünglich lagen zwei Exklaven von Morayshire in der benachbarten Grafschaft Inverness-shire und Morayshire umschloss eine Exklave von Inverness-shire. Bei der Bildung von Verwaltungsgrafschaften im Jahr 1890 wurden diese Exklaven ausgetauscht und seitdem bestand Morayshire aus einem geschlossenen Gebiet. 1975 ging Morayshire im District Moray der Region Grampian auf. Der District entspricht eher der historischen Landschaft Moray, die größer war als die Grafschaft. Die Landschaft wurde vom Clan Murray beherrscht, an dessen Spitze bis zum Ende des 13. Jahrhunderts die piktischen Mormaer von Moray als Kleinkönige standen. Die Region Grampian wurde 1996 aufgelöst und Moray als Council Area installiert. Morayshire ist heute noch eine der Lieutenancy Areas von Schottland.

The Local Government (Scotland) Act 1889 transferred these exclaves to the counties which surrounded them. The county was officially called Elginshire, sharing the name of the Elginshire parliamentary constituency, so named since 1708. In 1975, under the Local Government (Scotland) Act 1973, most of the county was combined with the Aberlour, Buckie, Cullen, Dufftown, Findochty, Keith and Portknockie areas of the county of Banffshire to form the Moray district of the Grampian region. The Grantown-on-Spey and Cromdale areas were combined with the Kingussie and Badenoch areas of the county of Inverness-shire to form the Badenoch and Strathspey district of the Highland region. In 1996 the Moray district was superseded by the council area of Moray 1996, under the provisions of the Local Government etc. (Scotland) Act 1994. The registration county, for property, is 'County of Moray', and the Lieutenancy area, for ceremonial purposes is 'Moray'. The lieutenancy area contains a slightly smaller area than the historic county. (en)
