WELCOME TO THE FRIENDS OF GUISACHAN
…AND THE WORLD’S FIRST STORE FEATURING AUTHENTIC, HISTORICAL GUISACHAN TWEED HAND-MADE ITEMS. CELEBRATING THE HISTORY OF THE GOLDEN RETRIEVER
Dedicated to the ancestral home of the Golden Retriever.
Friends of Guisachan is a non-profit organization comprised of people interested in Golden Retriever history. The Friends was created to share information about Guisachan, the ancestral home of the Golden Retriever and to share news of the 2018 world-wide celebration of the 150th anniversary of the founding of the breed. The breed was founded in 1868 by Dudley Coutts Marjoribanks, later known as Lord Tweedmouth at the historic Guisachan Estate.
To mark the historic founding of the Golden Retriever breed, the Friends erected a life-size bronze statue of a Golden Retriever, placed alongside the granite memorial to Lord and Lady Tweedmouth. These two tributes can be found in the Scottish Highland village of Tomich, Inverness-shire along the tree-lined road to the Guisachan House ruins. Here is your opportunity to honor every four-legged “Guisachan Descendant” who ever shared your home and your love.
Through this website, we plan to share all things Guisachan ranging from Golden Retriever history to the latest Guisachan Gatherings and on into the future.
