Until 1833, the properties of Killiechonate, and Inverlair, were a part of the vast Gordon estates which spanned Scotland from the east coast to Fort William in the west. The reasons for their fragmentation are complex and interconnected, but what became known as the Inverlochy Castle Estate was bought firstly by the Earl of Aboyne, later the Marquis of Huntly. Closely related to the Duke of Gordon, he was in equally straitened financial circumstances, and he quickly sold it on to Lord Abinger. At the same time, Inverlair was sold to the Walkers of Crawfordton whose main early interest was in sheep farming; not so the Abingers who built Inverlochy Castle and became immersed in the Highland way of life and all its traditions.

In 1926, The British Aluminium Co. bought the two adjoining estates to provide power for the new smelter in Fort William; the Abingers retained Inverlochy Castle and some 4,500 acres which were subsequently sold and developed into The Great Glen Cattle Ranch and Inverlochy Castle Hotel.
