Georgian House



Georgian House review Rate it

When John Lamont, the 18th Chief of Clan Lamont, bought this house in 1796, it cost him the princely sum of £1,600. It's now run by the National Trust for Scotland (NTS), with excellent reconstructions that open a window on to how the upper classes lived during the late 18th and early 19th centuries. The rooms are packed with period furnishings and details, right down to sugar cones, locked tea caddies and newspapers. The basement contains an informative video presentation; well-informed guides are happy to answer questions.
