This was anciently part of the possessions of the Barons Trusbuts; from whom it descended to Lord Ross, and was the principal residence of the descendants of that noble family, for many generations. Here was a Chapel, dedicated to St. Mary, in which Sir Robert Ross was interred on the 21st of January, 1393. The site of the house, gardens, &c. may yet be traced, in a field, called Hall Garth."
