Strichen House

The remains of Strichen House lie a mile (1.5 km) to the southwest of Strichen in Buchan. It was designed in 1821 for Thomas Fraser of Strichen who later became Lord Lovat. It was sold to the Bairds of Gartsherrie in 1855 and was later used as a shooting lodge, a hotel and an army billet before being gutted in 1954.

A small recumbent stone circle dating from the 2nd or 3rd millennium BC lies just to the north and the Formartine and Buchan Way runs to the northwest.
