ActivityCulbokie was in Ross-shire near to Dingwall. William Fraser of Guisachan (d 1544), brother of Hugh, Lord Fraser of Lovat died in 1544 and was succeeded by his eldest son Hugh Fraser of Culbokie and Guisachan (d 1587), who inherited the lands of Culbokie from his uncle James Fraser. He died in 1587 and was succeeded in the estates by his second son, Hugh Fraser. Hugh Fraser of Culbokie and Guisachan (d 1634) acquired the barony of Drumchardiny and was succeeded by his eldest son William Fraser of Culbokie. William Fraser of Culbokie (d 1669) acquired the barony of Kingillie in 1637. He was member of parliament for Inverness in 1649, 1650 and 1651 and died in 1669. He was succeeded by his eldest son, Hugh Fraser of Culbokie (d 1678) who was subsequently outlawed and lost the estates of Drumchardiny, Kingillie and Culbokie.
