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. The Walled Garden, inside which is a particularly fine sundial (see separate listing), is carefully terraced to incorporate the gentle slope of the hill, the walls survive in near perfect condition.
