St. Duthac’s Church in Tain

St. Duthac’s Church in Tain, Scotland. Interesting early history involving Clan Ross, worth a visit as it is onsite with Tain Museum and Clan Ross Centre. A place where Rosses return from all over the world.

Balnagown Castle

Balnagown Castle the early historical seat of power of Clan Ross. A great place to arrange a visit while in Tain. Over the years it had become derelict, until Al Fayed (was at the time owner of Harrods) bought the castle and estate which he restored.
