Wife of Kenneth Mackenzie, 3rd Earl of Seaforth, Countess Isabella was a granddaughter of that formidable personage, Sir John Mackenzie of Tarbat, the Tutor of Kintail, and a sister of the 1st Earl of Cromartie, and has come down, in local legend at least, as responsible for the death of the Brahan Seer. The portrait is thought to be a marriage portrait by the Scottish artist David Scougall.
