Scope and Content This winter view shows Novar House, its walled garden to the N, and Assynt House to the NW. The lands of the Novar Estate were acquired in 1589 from Sir William Keith of Delny by Neil Munro of Swordale. At the time the Novar lands covered one quarter of the lands known as Fyrish. There is a datestone of 1634 built into the side of the original Novar House, which is now part of the west side of the inner courtyard. The house was enlarged considerably in 1720 with a three-storey building facing south under Hector Munro, 4th of Novar.
