John Ross of Clochan and Arnage
A portrait of Provost John Ross of Arnage (1665 - 1714). He served as Provost of Aberdeen from 1710-1711. Provost Ross' House on Shiprow, later part of the Aberdeen Maritime Museum, was named after him. Ross died on 15th September 1714 while on business in Amsterdam and is buried in the English Church of that city.

This portrait is said to have been painted in 1685 by Sir John Medina (1659-1710). The painting is at Fyvie Castle and is owned by the National Trust for Scotland. A correspondent informs us that it was donated by the Leith-Ross family, and formerly hung in Leith Hall.
