Haddo House

Aberdeenshire - Earl of Aberdeen


"Haddo House is very pleasantly situated in the Formatine disctrict of Aberdeenshire. The grounds are without much natural beauty; but by the good taste of the fourth Earl of Aberdeen, the well-known Prime Minister, they were skilfully adorned with vast plantations, intersected with drives extending over sixty miles.

The House was built in 1732 by William, the second Earl. The more ancient name of the seat was House of Kelly, and during the Rebellion it was the subject of a siege and was partially burnt down.

The Gordons have been in possession of Methlic since 1440, when Sir Patrick Gordon fought with the king against the Earl of Crawford at the battle of Arbroath. He lost his life, but his son was rewarded for his father's loyalty by a grant of a part of the barony of Kelly."
