Kinross was proclaimed in 1915 and named after the Scottish town of the same name. The town is the centre of one of South Africa’s most advanced maize, potato and cattle-farming regions. It lies some 1 672 m above sea level on the crest of South Africa’s watershed. Its position means that the rain falling on the eastern side of the town makes its way to the Indian Ocean and that falling west of the town runs into the far-off South Atlantic Ocean.
