Branches & Associated Buildings
The Clan Farquharson was made up of many different branches. The power of the clan came from the ability for all the different families to pool their resources and help one another in times of need and in shows of strength. Each branch was led by a different person who was at least moderately related to the other branches. The branches were designated by the main house that the owner was in, the person themselves were often known by that name. Currently the chief line of Clan Farquharson is held with the Invercauld family. Before it passed to the Invercauld family it was held by the Castleton of Braemar line that lived in Kindrochit Castle. Some of the houses are still standing, others have been substantially changed from their appearance in the time of the Clan, and others have been reduced to rubble.
