Teaninich House, Evanton

Teaninich House, dated 1784, although it probably held an earlier core; former seat of the Munros of Teaninich (or Culmalachie, the old word for Teaninich).

Hugh Munro owned land in Alness and Kiltearn according to the Rent Roll of the Seriffdom of Inverness, in 1644 with a value of £440.16 (Scots). The Munros of Teaninich acquired the Milntown of Alness in February 1660 for £515.12.6 (Sterling). In 1786 Captain James Munro sold the lands of Wester Teaninich, Ballachraggan and Culcraggie to Sir Hector Munro of Novar, reserving the superiority rights for the mill at Teaninich (some say this was a snuff mill).

One of the previous owners, Charles Harrison, is said to have been the inspiration for one of the characters in Frances Hodgeson Burnett's book "Little Lord Fauntleroy".
