Invercauld  Aberdeenshire


In 1882-4, Frances Groome's Ordnance Gazetteer of Scotland described Invercauld like this:

Invercauld, a mansion in Crathie and Braemar parish, SW Aberdeenshire, within 3 furlongs of the Dee's left bank, and 4 miles ENE of Castleton (as the crow flies, only 1½). A large old Baronial edifice, sheltered all round by wooded hills, and having a great extent of picturesque Highland grounds, it was altered and enlarged in 1872, when a wing and a massive and lofty grey granite tower were added, but when the apartments were demolished whence the Earl of Mar issued his famous letters prior to the unfurling of the Jacobite standard at Castleton in 1715. ...

Held by his ancestors since the close of the 14th century, it is the seat of James Ross Farquharson, Esq. (b. 1834; suc. 1862), who owns 87,745 acres in the shire, valued at £9567 per annum.—Ord. Sur., sh. 65, 1870.
