Hall of Clestrain
|This article needs additional citations for verification. (December 2013)|
The Hall of Clestrain in the parish of Orphir, Orkney, Scotland, was built in 1769 for Patrick Honyman. It featured in the second series of the BBC TV series Restoration. It was the birthplace of the explorer John Rae and was visited by Sir Walter Scott in 1814.
It was intended that the building would form the centrepiece of a proposed Orkney Boat Museum although these plans were abandoned following an unsuccessful bid for support from the Heritage Lottery Fund.
On February 10, 1725 the infamous pirate John Gow raided the previous hall nearby.
