This postcard shows Novar House, part of Novar Estate near Evanton. The house was originally built in the 17th century but was reconstructed in 1765.

Novar estate encompasses 20,000 acres of land between the River Glass and the River Alness and incorporates farming, forestry and country sports. It is famous as the site of the first wind farm in the Highlands
