Tour Scotland Photograph Cottage Glen Affric Scottish Highlands

Tour Scotland photograph of cottage in Glen Affric on ancestry genealogy visit to the Scottish Highlands, Scotland. Glen Affric, also written Glenaffric, was part of the lands of the Clan Chisholm and the Clan Fraser of Lovat from the 15th to the mid 19th centuries. By the early 15th century, Lord Lovat had passed the lands to his son Thomas who in turn passed it on to his son, William Fraser, first Laird of Guisachan. The lands included regions that would become the Glen Affric deer park and the Guisachan Estate, including the village of Tomich. In 1579, Thomas Chisholm, Laird of Strathglass, was imprisoned for being a Catholic. The Battle of Glen Affric took place in 1721.
