Dunskaith or Dunskeath House

With reference to the thread accompanying my photo (see picture #981) of Ben Wyvis regarding Dunskaith or Dunskeath House, I attach a photo of the house which is owned by Dr Jonathan Jenkins formerly of Cromarty Firth Petroleum.

Thanks Alan, great picture. This is the house I recall, especially the part in the background. You are indeed very fortunate to live in this area

This takes me back! My grandfather is Tom Wotherspoon who worked for Cromarty Petroleum/Dow Chemical and was based in Dunskeath House for about 20 years! He kept his cattle and sheep at Pitcalnie Farm, Black Springs, and on the old golf course. We lived in Alness and spent a lot of time out at this house when I was growing up - kept my pony in the field at the back! Very happy days!

As a child I spent many happy holidays here - the grounds of the house held a caravan site owned by a family called the Tippings - does anyone have any info regarding the caravan site etc?

I think I remember the Tippings had a shop in part of the old building - one of my earliest and happiest memories is that of caravanning there (and buying "Heart" chocolate ice creams!). The old submarine nets were still visable on the beach then. I sometimes was allowed to venture out with the salmon fishers round the Sutor - very exciting!

Although the gate sign read 'Dunskeath House', in fact the 'House' was burnt down in the 1950s. The present buildings may have carried on the title but would have been mere outbuildings of the original.

Does any one have a picture of the main house? I was out there recently and so impressed with the outbuildings. Thanks Paul.

My partner and I walk our dog, near Dunskeath House, it is such a shame that this once lovely house is falling into rack and ruin, we wish someone would buy it and turn it into a hotel, or a caravan site, I feel so sad when looking at it.
