     History
    One of the oldest timber-clad buildings in Scotland is the Swiss Cottage near Fochabers, built c.1820 for the Duke of Gordon to a Loudon pattern book design. It appears to be clad in relatively fast-grown Scots pine and, since it is known that Loudon advocated the use of Strathspey pine for other buildings in this area, it is quite likely that the cladding is of homegrown timber. (from http://www.scotlan...ousing/tcis-06.asp)
     Media Coverage
    Story in the Press and Journal recently about rare boxwood trees being stolen from the grounds of the house - yes, they care more about trees than an interesting house being left to rot.
