Letter from Hugh Rose, Nairn to Isabella Baillie, Anstruther, page 1

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 dated 17 August 1817. It is a letter from Hugh Rose, Nairn to Isabella Baillie in Anstruther, Fife announcing the death of her son Archy. Hugh goes on to talk about the funeral arrangements - it is to be held in Inverness
