The Baillies of Dunain were an Inverness family who lived in and around the area from the mid-15th century onwards. Although their estate was small in comparison with many of the principal Highland families, they occupied a niche in the upper levels of Highland society.

A substantial collection of the family's papers is held by The Highland Council Archive Service. The papers cover the period c.1760-1860.

This document is an undated letter from John Baillie of Inverness to Isabella Baillie, of Budgate near Cawdor. In it, John talks about the poor state of game on the Dunain Estate - the poachers have been there already! He gives her his plans for shooting and advises that her forester get rid of the poachers
