This historic building was situated between the bottom of Hill Street and Well Street. It was reputed to have been built during the reign of James II (1437-1450) and the residence of one of the early clerical provosts of Tain. The Marquis of Montrose spent the night in this building on his way to execution in Edinburgh after his capture at the battle of Carbisdale in 1650. Incredibly, this building was demolished in 1940 despite the valiant efforts of Provost William Ross to save it.
