Strathalbyn - accommodation, restaurants, things to do

Strathalbyn was laid out by Dr John Rankine who arrived in South Australia on the "Fairfield" in 1839. Much has been written on the origin of this name and the most authentic would appear to be in the book They Built Strathalbyn by H.J. Stowe: Matthew Rankine, who came from Scotland with his uncle, Dr Rankine, when publishing his memoirs in the Southern Argus in 1912 said he had written to his aunt in Scotland who was the doctor's widow. She said strath was Gaelic for "a valley with a river running through it'', but albyn was not a Gaelic word. The doctor had been a main shareholder in the "Albion Iron Mills'' in Glasgow and he wanted to associate the business with the new settlement he had created in South Australia, not liking "Strathalbion'', he made it "Strathalbyn''.
