Louis XV walnut framed three-piece salon suite 19th century comprising a settee and a pair of armchairs, with flower carved frames covered in floral plush upholstery. Beautiful condition and a genuine country house piece. Of extremely high quality. If this furniture could talk…. Provenance by repute, ex Castle of Mey. The Castle of Mey was built by George, the 4th Earl of Caithness, for his second son William Sinclair.

Formerly known as Barrogill Castle, and dating back to the 1500’s. In 1952, HM Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother saw what was then known as Barrogill Castle while staying with Commander and Lady Doris Vyner at the House of the Northern Gate on Dunnet Head, a short distance to the west. Despite its poor condition, Her Majesty purchased the castle that year and set about renovating and restoring both the castle and its gardens and parklands, which extended to about 30 acres. She also restored the castle's original name changing Barrogill Castle back to The Castle of Mey.

The Queen Mother spent three weeks in August at the castle, returning for about ten days in October each year.

The Castle of Mey, when purchased in 1952, was surrounded by only 30 acres of parkland or, as they are sometimes called, policies. The castle, gardens and policies were all in a poor state and were renovated and restored by Her Majesty between 1953 and 1955.
