There is an entire complex of buildings on this site worth seeing. The grounds and buildings are well maintained. We were there for the Scotland County Highland Games held on the grounds each year at this time, and enjoyed it very much.

This is run by volunteers from the historical society and they are very, very helpful in relating the history and answering questions....a must for history buffs. Grounds are large and a good place for kids to run around.
