Described by architectural historians as possibly the finest sepulchral monument in Aberdeenshire, the Category A listed mausoleum was built for the first female laird of Castle Fraser by James Byres of Tonley in the Roman New-Classical style in 1808. The standard of construction is superb although internally water ingress has damaged the memorials. Now owned by The NESPT and a restoration project is in preparation.
A representative of the Friends of Elyza Fraser group will be on hand to talk about the mausoleum.
Architect: James Byres, Tonley
Building Date: 1808
