Administrative / Biographical History

The estate of Ross Priory on the shores of Loch Lomond was owned by the Leith Buchanan Family for many years. It was leased by Major George Christie from 1925 and eventually purchased by him in 1949. He was responsible for designing the informal garden, and collected plants on trips to the Himalayas. The photographs of India were taken by S H Christie, probably a relative of Major Christie. The University of Strathclyde purchased the estate in 1971.
