The Duke of Fife

I am relishing the prospect of beginning a brand new series on the greatest landowners in Scotland.

I propose to start with His Grace the Duke of Fife, who owned almost 136,000 acres of land in Aberdeenshire; apart from many thousands of acres in several other counties.

Her Majesty Queen Victoria was well down the list in Aberdeenshire, with about 25,000 acres.

I expect to commence in early November.
