  • Our History

    Innes House was built by Sir Robert Innes between 1640 - 1651 and was the home of the Innes family until 1767 when Sir James Innes went bankrupt and sold the estate to the 2nd Earl of Fife - who spent a great deal of money on the house and estate and planted many of the superb trees which are in the parkland today.

    At the beginning of the last century the house was bought by Francis and Annie Tennant who considerably enlarged and modernised the house. Francis was the second son of the first Lord Glenconner whose grandfather invented bleaching powder. Lord Glenconner was one of the great Scottish industrialists of the 19th century who amongst other achievements had his last child when he was 85 - she became Baroness Elliott of Harwood and when she died in 1997 aged 98, her father had been born the year before the Battle of Waterloo!

    The House was completely refurbished by Mark & Hermione Tennant in 1997, who also created the ‘Garden Room’, or as we say: “Some houses have a Marquee in their garden, but Innes has a Garden in their Marquee!”

    The present owners of the house are Edward & Zoë Tennant - Edward represents the 5th generation of the Tennant Family to own Innes, making him the great-great-grandson of Francis Tennant.
