Notes for Simon Augustine FRASER
Master of Lovat. Died of a heart attack hunting in Scotland.

Simon Augustine Fraser, Master of Lovat (28 August 1939 – 26 March 1994) was the son of 15th Lord Lovat and the former Rosamond Broughton. He predeceased his father, and his son Simon inherited the Lordship of Lovat in 1995. He died of a heart attack while hunting on his (then) estate at Beaufort Castle.

Simon spent around three years as a Lieutenant in the Scots Guards, mostly overseas.

During his life, he accumulated an estimated seven million pounds sterling (£7,000,000) in debts. As a result, upon his father's death in 1995, the family estate of Beaufort Castle was sold, for around £1,500,000. His son, Simon, has voiced his determination to buy it back.

Simon had business interests in salmon aquaculture and smoking salmon in Maine, USA and Scotland. He was an investor in vineyards in Australia. He had some small interest in oil in North Africa.
Simon married Virginia Grose, and together they had four children:
The Hon. Violet Fraser, born 1972
The Hon. Honor Fraser, born 1973
Simon Fraser, 16th Lord Lovat, born 1977
The Hon. Jack Fraser, born 1984
