Highfield House, Muir of Ord

This postcard shows Highfield House at Muir of Ord in Easter Ross. The house was built around the middle of the 19th century and was home to the Mackenzies of Highfield. Highfield House met with disaster in 1947, when it was burned to the ground. All that remain now are gate lodges and what is known as The Dower House, a building that was converted from a traditional thatched farm house into a residence for the lady dowager. This eventually became the Mackenzies' new family home
