The old Dowager Countess of Seafield died in Oct 1911 and had been widowed since 1881. She was for many years a close friend of Queen Victoria and both King Edward VII and King George V have been entertained by her. Queen Alexandra often stayed in Castle Grant, which is considered one of the treasure houses of Scotland. Lord Seafield, it is said, possessed the largest private forests in the United Kingdom. They extend over an area of 300,000 miles and cover a vast part of Elgin, Inverness and Banff.
