  John Graham of Claverhouse, Viscount Dundee 1649-1689
Claverhouse was a professional soldier who fought in Europe before returning to Scotland to the service of Charles II.
Following the Glorious Revolution of 1688 which saw James VII and II deposed in favour of William and Mary, Claverhouse raised a Highland army in support of the exiled James and at the Battle of Killiecrankie in 1689, defeated a much larger Williamite force.
Unfortunately for the Jacobite cause, Claverhouse died on the field and with his death, the first Jacobite rebellion effectively ceased.

Later it passed to the Claverhouse branch of the family, but they, too, lost everything when "Bonnie Dundee" (Viscount John Graham of Claverhouse) was killed at Killiecrankie and the land was granted by royal charter to the Marquis of Douglas in 1694.
Its builder was John Strachan and from the dates 1569 and 1588 which appear at the base of the two tower gables, it seems that construction took longer than might have been expected for such a relatively small building.
In 1601 the estate was sold to Sir William Graham of Ballunie and in 1620 it was again sold to Sir William Graham of Claverhouse, Viscount Dundee, who inherited the estate which included Claypotts in 1678.
