By kind permission of the Urquhart family. This Scots renaissance house dates from 1604 and was extended by William Adam and then John Smith. Furnishings in the main rooms date back to the the mid-18th and 19th centuries. The drawing room on the first floor contains unique 17th century wood carvings which depict biblical themes, Scottish kings and great heroes. Two stone spiral staircases take you from the drawing room to the different bedrooms (many of which still have Heppelthwaite four poster beds and other original pieces); the gallery (with portraits of ancestors and others related to the family history, including Peter the Great); as well as two libraries (one with volumes from the 17th and 19th centuries, and one with original and often-signed works from the 20th and 21st centuries).
