Message from the family seat - Arnot Tower, Scotland

Dear members of Clan Arnet/Arnot,

My husband and I live at Arnot Tower, in the 1870s manor house next to the ruined 1420s castle also known as Arnot Tower, near Scotlandwell in Kinross-shire, parish of Portmoak. I am a gardener, and am restoring the ten acres of gardens around the ruined castle, with a view to opening the gardens and castle as a visitor attraction (see photos on To raise the funds for the restoration, we intend to rent the gardens as a venue for weddings, renewal of vows and other events, and for this we need planning permission.

Would you be prepared to email a letter of support to our local planners? It would greatly help our cause for the planners to realise that there is a large and active Arnet family with an interest in their ancestral home! If you email me directly on I can send you a ready-made email to send in support of our venture.

I cannot begin to express how much your help would be appreciated, and I very much look forward to hearing from you.

Best regards,

Helen Gray, Lady Arnot
