Grangemuir House, Fife, Scotland. Grangemuir House was the seat of a junior branch of the Douglas family in Scotland. The house and attached estate was bought by Walter Irvine, a Scot who owned sugar estates in Tobago and Luddington House in Surrey. It then passed to Irvine's daughter, Elizabeth, and her husband, Lord William Robert Keith Douglas, the fourth son of Sir James Douglas, 4th Baronet of Kelhead and younger brother of both Charles Douglas, 6th Marquess of Queensberry and John Douglas, 7th Marquess of Queensberry. Grangemuir House is located just north of Pittenweem in Fife, Scotland and is located in the Grangemuir Caravan Park.

My great grandfather Charles Irvine Douglas was born here and I'm curious why it is no longer in the Douglas family. The house is in need of serious funds to restore it. It was quite a place in its day and obviously the sugar plantation money ran out. Have a look at the church nearby called Dunino that was supported by the Douglas's and where many are buried.
