Kinrara

Kinrara lies close to Rothiemurchus and Aviemore. The landscape is mostly covered in birch trees and Tor Alvie is the principal hill in the district. Kinrara was chosen by Jane, Duchess of Gordon as her summer residence and it was here that she was buried at her request.

The illustration was taken from 'Remarks on Local Scenery and Manners in Scotland' vol.2 by John Stoddart. 'The house was a mere Highland farm...Her Grace has taken it, as it stood, its thatched roof, its out-houses, its barn and byre, and with an addition only of a single room, and with some alteration of arrangement in the others, has converted it into a summer residence.'
