Viscount Crichton

John Henry Michael Ninian Crichton, styled Viscount Crichton, is a courtesy lord and heir to the Earl of Erne.

Lord Crichton divides his time between the ancestral family seat, Crom Castle, County Fermanagh, and his home in London, where he is a property consultant.

Crom is one of the most stately and imposing places in Northern Ireland. The Castle and immediate grounds are private (Lord & Lady Erne); and the estate, which is a property of the National Trust, is open to the public.

The west wing of Crom Castle, where Lord Crichton lives, has been transformed into a sumptuous and discrete apartment within the Castle which is available, on a commercial basis, for luxury breaks, parties, weddings or functions. Here is an interesting press article.

Lord Crichton's other interests include shooting, skiing, theatre and amateur dramatics.
