A HIGHLAND LEGACY.

The Maitlands of Tain, their Work and their World An important part of the built heritage of the Northern Highlands is Victorian and Edwardian. Andrew Maitland, two sons and a grandson, architects based in Tain, made significant contributions across the region -

including farm buildings, churches, shooting lodges, hotels, courthouses, town halls, commercial buildings, villas and whisky distilleries, including Glenmorangie, where they played a pivotal role. Tain itself became a place of rare charm and beauty. Hamish Mackenzie has researched the people who commissioned the Maitlands and why they did so. He brings to life a fascinating variety of characters against a backdrop of social, religious, political and technological change. You can read the stories behind buildings across the Northern Highlands, from Portmahomack in the east to Gairloch in the west. Those in Tain include the Sheriff Court, the Royal Hotel, the Parish Church, what are now the Morangie House and Mansfield Castle hotels, the former Clydesdale Bank, the old Post Office, the Library and Knockbreck School.
