Statement of Interest

'Tigh-na-Geat' (formerly 'Tigh-na-teud') meaning 'house of the harp string' is traditionally thought to have been the house of a ferryman who mended a harp string for Mary Queen of Scots when she passed through Moulin en route to Blair Castle in 1564. Clearly this must refer to an earlier building on the site remnants of which may be incorporated. An early photograph shows turned finials on each of the dormer windows.
