Lord Gough later became a Field Marshal. As of 2009 the titles are held by his great-great-grandson, the fifth Viscount, who succeeded his father in 1951.
The family seat was set down by the 1st Viscount near Gort at Lough Cutra Castle, County Galway, Ireland when purchased by him in 1852. The family seat presently is Keppoch House, near Dingwall, Ross-shire, Scotland.
