The North and South wings of Tankerness House were originally manses for the Cathedral clergy. After the reformation they were bought by Gilbert Foulzie, the first Protestant minister, who, in 1574, built the arched gateway that bears his coat of arms. For three centuries this was the home of the Baikie family of Tankerness, whose estate gave the house its name. There will be two tours of the building, led by Tom Muir, giving the history of Tankerness House as a home, at 11.00 and 14.00, lasting about 45 minutes.
The Museum is open on Saturday 21st September 10.30-5pm.
