Portraits at Thirlestane Castle

Dining Room at Thirlestane

After all that effort trying to locate Maitland Ancestor portraits it turns out that there’s over 30 paintings alone in the dining room at Thirlestane Castle. The castle administrator has kindly sent me a list of portraits there, but there must be more round the castle as the list does not mention the ones of Penelope Madan, Elizabeth Lauder and her father. It would be great to visit the castle at some point, but in the meantime I’d love to see some digital copies of the following: John 1st Earl of Lauderdale, Charles 3rd Earl of Lauderdale, Lady Margaret Cunningham (5th Countess, heiress of the Glencairn family),  John 5th Earl of Lauderdale, Elizabeth Ogilvie 6th Countess and John Maitland 1st Lord Thirlestane.
