The Estate was sold in the 1930s to Brigadier James Stirling of Fairburn before being purchased by Lord Campbell of Croy in 1969, father of the current owner, and Secretary of State for Scotland in the early 1970s. At Holme Rose, Lord Campbell hosted many senior British and international politicians including three Prime Ministers, various US senators and European royal family.

The original farmhouse was built in the mid-18th century. In 1820, Colonel Rose added the classical Georgian front using locally sourced attractive Nairn pink sand stone.
