Tarbat House  Ross and Cromarty


In 1882-4, Frances Groome's Ordnance Gazetteer of Scotland described Tarbat House like this:

Tarbat House, the seat of Viscount Tarbat, in Kilmuir-Easter parish, Ross and Cromarty, near the NW side of Nigg Bay, and 7 furlongs SSE of Kildary station. It was built by John, Lord Macleod, in the latter part of the 18th century, and has stately avenues and beautiful gardens. New Tarbat Castle, once the seat of the Earls of Cromarty, stood near the site of the present mansion, and was a stately, turreted edifice, which fell into dilapidation after the third Earl's forfeiture in 1746, and has left some remains. See Cromarty.—Ord. Sur., sh. 94, 1878.
