Rosneath is a village in Argyll and Bute, Scotland. Rosneath Castle was ruined and rebuilt many times; the final rebuilding came in 1803, three years after the previous building burnt down. Located further uphill from previous versions, it belonged to the Duke of Argyll whose family retained it until Princess Louise, daughter of Queen Victoria who had married into the family, died in 1939. In stark contrast to the earlier incarnations, it was in the Italianate style. An attractive manuscript plan, with compass points and scale below.
