The Auld Hoose

The Auld Hoose

This set is part of the following collections:

Carolina Oliphant, later Lady Nairne, was born in 1766 in "the auld hoose" at Gask, Perthshire. She appears to have had an extremely happy childhood, which is reflected in her songs, in which she waxed lyrical about her family, the auld hoose where they lived, and the rowan tree she used to play around. The Auld Hoose was demolished in about 1801 (the ruins are pictured below, photographed in 1899).
