Lord Huntly's Cave, Speyside, 1905

A postcard of Lord Huntly's Cave, dating from 1905.



The cave is located approximately 5 km north of Grantown, and is named after Lewis Gordon, 3rd Marquis of Huntly, who hid there for a time in the early 1640s.



Gordon was a Royalist, loyal to the king Charles I, and had fought against the Covenanters, a religious and political movement that opposed the king's interference in the Presbyterian Church in Scotland.



Because of his involvement in the Royalist campaign, Lewis Gordon was for a time forced into hiding in a cave in the vicinity of Castle Grant. While there he was looked after by Mary, the daughter of Sir John Grant of Freuchie, who he later married.
