Planned villages and towns
New settlement
main image Planned village, Dallas, Moray
Dallas was founded in 1811. Like most of Scotland's planned villages it was created and, to an extent, run by a local landowner.

Dallas got by as a trades and services centre for its agricultural hinterland. The presence of two storey houses on a broad, if poorly drained, street suggests the intention of creating something grander and more urban.

Without patronage, industry or tourists, Dallas never prospered – a fate shared by many planned villages. Its North American namesake fared better.
