Enjoy a unique opportunity to see around the House of Schivas which is in the private ownership of the Catto Family. Hear about the five families who lived at Schivas and their compelling influence not only on the history and architecture of Schivas but the local area and even the country.

Discover the story of Mary Gray, an outlander in life and even in death; as she haunts the house today. Enjoy the fabulous Scottish paintings collection, and many special features which make  Schivas memorable, from its Jacobite connections and turbulent past due to the Catholic faith the Gray Family held dear, through to the challenges the House and Estate face today.
