John Grant, Lord Huntingtower

John Peter Grant of Rothiemurchus, Lord Huntingtower (born 22 October 1946) is the heir apparent to his mother, the 12th Countess of Dysart. He is a descendent of the old Lairds of Grant who were the masters of Muckrach Castle [1] in the 17th Century. The Peerage website says that he is the 16th Laird of Rothiemurchus.

His father was Lieutenant-Colonel John Peter Grant, Laird of Rothiemurchus. His mother is Katherine Grant, 12th Countess of Dysart. He has one sibling, Lady Jane Margery Buxton, born on 2 February 1943. Lord Huntingtower owns the Rothiemurchus estate in the Highlands that is open to the public as an adverture and leisure park. The estate is the site of the Loch-an-Eilean castle (see article about the Clan Shaw) although what remains of this castle is not the present-day main residence, that being the recently-restored "Doune" house. The history involves Jacobite attacks and captures [2].
