Photocopy of original letter from Robert Mylne concerning the new house of Rosneath 1802.

Scottish Record Office

Letter to Earl of Mar. Full of bitterness.

"My aunt.....any more than she used Roseneath. This latter place she messed up in every way .......Now all Roseneath which we have held as I once had to remind my Aunt since 1470 after the forfeiture of Lennox's and of which we had parts for at least 300 years before that has to be sold ........ On going to Roseneath sometime after her death, found that she had not been there for 2 years." Argyll
