More information

Simon was the second son of Thomas Fraser (1631-1699), known as ‘Thomas of Beaufort’. His mother was Sybilla Macleod (d 1682). The Beaufort Frasers were related to Lord Lovat, the chief of the highland Clan Fraser. Simon was tutored privately at his home near Beauly, followed by a period at grammar school in Inverness. He was a capable student, becoming fluent in English, French and Gaelic, as well as gaining a solid grounding in Latin.



His older brother Alexander died from wounds received fighting government forces at the inconclusive Battle of Killiecrankie. Simon, now his father’s heir, left home to study at King's College, Aberdeen, where he was a ‘diligent student’ and graduated with an MA in 1695.
