Rannagulzion has been altered and extended over the generations to its substantial scale of today. It has had an interesting history; it was the home to James Rattray, who took part in the battle of Culloden in 1745 and was then imprisoned in London but later acquitted. During the Second World War it was a nursing home for Canadian officers and it is even thought that perhaps Queen Victoria sheltered during a snow storm on her way north!
