Statement of Interest

Extensive additions and re-casting of entrance to NE in mid

19th century designed by A and W Reid (plans dated 1848,

1856, 1893 on display in house). These additions demolished

and house, as restored in 1985, closely resembles 1700


Datestone reads: '1 JPG 700' probably for John Patrick Grant.

Easter Elchies House now offices and visitors' centre for

Macallan Distillery.
