More about this scene

Built between 1804 and 1844 by Richard Crichton and the Dickson brothers for Charles and James Moray, Abercairny is an example of a departure from the traditional approach to the design of country houses. Though it features a tower, the internal arrangement was not planned around a grand staircase or central hall, but around corridors. Similar houses include Southill (1796–1803) and a proposed design for Mamhead (1822).
