HUNTLY HOUSE

This is a typical 16th century built Canongate house with the triple gables over the two lower stories and its plastered, wood - framed upper floors.

Three early 16th century dwellings were integrated by John Acheson in 1570 to provide a roomy, though modest residence.

The name probably came from George 1st, Marquis of Huntly who briefly stayed there in 1636.

the House was also known as ' The Speaking House' because of the Latin inscriptions dispalyed on the exterior wall. There are five mottos, four from the 16th century and one which was added when it was last restored in 1932.
