Statement of Interest

THE STATISTICAL ACCOUNT refers to former 16th century church

and disjoined burial aisle dated 1586. This had been intended

as a 'burying place to the then family of Ballindalloch'. An

appropriate site for new mausoleum commissioned by George

(later Sir George) MacPherson-Grant of Ballindalloch and

Invereshie who was buried there in 1846.
