Easter Buckie (land E of the Buckie Burn) purchased by 1759 by John Gordon, 1st of Cluny, sometime Curator to Duke of Gordon with special responsibility for the Spey fishings and a merchant in Edinburgh. His eldest son, Cosmo (born Bellie Parish 1736, died 1800) inherited the Buckie lands
on his father's death in 1769 and concerned with the property, leaving the Edinburgh interests to his brother Charles Gordon of Braid. Cosmo was appointed a Baron of Exchequer by Lord North and Known as 'Baron' Gordon thereafter. Either he or his father built Cluny Lodge (orginally called Buckie Lodge). Cosmo died without an heir. House said to have been divided into 2 dwellings (probably during 19th century), 1 served by the now blocked door in N gable.
