Description

Dated 1725. Granite sundial. Octagonal shaft rising from circular base. Metal dial reading "Hugh Rose of Tullienaught 1725 IW ABD fecit".

Statement of Interest

The Ballogie Estate was, in 1650, called Tillysnaught, and belonged to the Roses of Kilravock. It then passed to the Forbes family, followed by the Innes family and their relatives the Farquharsons. When the Innes family of Ballogie and Balnacraig died out the Farquharsons took on their name, becoming Farquharson-Innes. In 1850 the estate was sold to Mr James Dyce Nicol, a former MP for Kincardineshire. He was described as "a progressive landowner, spending large sums of money on his properties". This sundial is similar, though slightly earlier, to the sundial (see separate listing) which stood beside Ballogie House (now demolished). The metal dial has been removed and is held at the new Ballogie House for safe-keeping (1999).
