About Sir Robert Arbuthnott, 1st Viscount Arbuthnott

Created 1st Viscount of ARBUTHNOT and Lord of The title Viscount of Arbuthnott was created in the Peerage of Scotland in 1641, along with the title Lord Inverbervie, for Sir Robert Arbuthnot.

The family seat is Arbuthnott House, Arbuthnott, near Inverbervie, Kincardineshire (Aberdeenshire).

Kincardineshire was a Scottish shire (later known as a county), which had previously been represented by two commissioners in the former Parliament of Scotland. The constituency included the whole shire, except for the Royal burgh of Inverbervie which formed part of the Aberdeen Burghs constituency.

All Viscounts in the Peerage of Scotland have "of" in their titles, but most Scottish Viscounts have dropped the practice of using "of." The only ones who persist in the usage of the word are the Viscount of Arbuthnott, and, to a lesser extent, the Viscount of Oxfuird.Viscounts of Arbuthnott (1641)
