Can’t remember it’s name but the one on the old road that goes round to Moy from Daviot?

It was a family home on a large estate in Ross-shire until the 70's.

There is a strong link between the estate and the Brahan Seer.

Think this might be Rosehaugh near Avoch if it's connected with Coinneach Odhar. He was supposed to be from Uig in Lewis so I've heard all about him. I think he lives on in Johndo.

No not Rosehaugh where my great uncle was the last head gardner before the house was demolished. This one is still standing and in use.

Just remembered that when I was at secondary school (the Academy) in the early 70s, a daughter of the people that owned Meallmore Hotel was in my year.  Marian MacLeod.  No idea what she did after we left school.

That makes her an exact contemporary of IHE, too, as well as Dave Milroy, Billy Urquhart and others.

Went round it when I was looking for a care home for my Mum.  It still looks pretty much like that, although they have added a more modern block at the right-hand side.  https://www.meallmore.co.uk/our-care-homes/meallmore-lodge/

I think its Fairburn House out near Marybank ?

You were correct dumpmaster Mantis was struggling :lol: but not asking for more clues.  It was last owned by Roderick Sterling who sold it and moved to Arcan Mains but he still run the estate.  My grandfather worked in the sawmill there from the early 50's until 1975 when he retired so I know the estate very well.  There was a recent report that Fairburn Tower which is a ruin could be rebuilt and that is where the Brahan Seer said that a calf would be born in the top of the tower and it was!

Here is a link to Fairburn Estate which has been updated since I last looked there are some good photos.

I did know it but was out clapping for the NHS and he bet me to it :clapping:
