Albumen print | 7.6 x 7.3 cm (image) | RCIN 2320147

Photograph of Invercauld House at the base of high ground, the lower part of which is populated with trees. Immediately in front of the house is the open ground of the Dee Valley. In the foreground are trees that obscure the River Dee.

Invercauld House has been significantly extended since the first fortified tower was built on the present day site during the 15th century. It has been home to the Farquharson Family since the area was settled by the family during the middle ages. The house was extended and modernised in 1875.
