ActivityThe Nairne family gained the estate in Drumkilbo when Agnes Nairne (1633 - 1710), sister to the 1st Lord Nairne of Strathorde, bought the estate from Lord and Lady Balmarino for £70,000. She entered into an arrangement with her nephew, Alexander Nairne (the Alexander who features in this collection) whereby she and her husband would have possession of the property in liferent but he and his legal descendents would be the heirs to the property. Alexander Nairne of Drumkilbo died sometime before 1742 and the Nairne line died out with the death of David Nairne in 1854. The estate of Drumkilbo is now in the parish of Meigle in Perth and Kinross.
