Glengarry Castle Hotel
Glengarry Castle Hotel
'Invergarry House, later re-named Glengarry Castle Hotel, was built in
1866-1869 by celebrated architect David Bryce for Edward Ellice Jnr. David
Bryce built over 100 Baronial Mansions and his other works include Fettes
College, The Royal Infirmary and The Bank of Scotland all of which are in
Each David Bryce house or project was unique, but used elements drawn from a
familiar repertoire including canted bay windows and turelles - small round
towers. An unusual feature in Invergarry House is the Canadian pitch-pine
panelling which dominates the entrance hall.
Inscriptions can also be found on stone plaques set into the outer walls of the house:

Mur tog an tighearna an tigh gu diomhain saoithrichidh a luchd togail.
(Psalm 127: v1) (Except the Lord build the house, they labour in vain that build it.)
With thy blessing let the house of thy servant be blessed forever. (II
Samuel Chp 7: v29)
A merciful man will be merciful to his beast (Old Proverb)
An cuir am muchadh agus cha bhi thu'n dith (Do not smoother him and there will not be, or Do not extinguish or suffocate and you will not be in need)

From its completion in 1869, Invergarry House was occupied by the Ellice
family until 1923, subsequently by Sir Fredrick Wills, Sir Mortimer Singer
and W. V Goodbody. It then passed into the possession of the Hydro-Electric
Board until purchased by the three Cameron sisters of whom one remains joint
owner.' Descriptions taken from the hotel website LinkExternal link
