Archie Briggs House, Pitlochry, Perthshire, Scotland

In 1966, the National Children's Home (NCH) opened its second branch in Scotland, a home for seventeen children known as Archie Briggs House at Pitlochry, Perthshire. The property had been donated in memory of her husband by Mrs I Briggs. A chapel was subsequently built in the grounds of the home.

The property is now a privately owned shooting lodge.
