Lochdhu Lodge

Location type


Name and dates

Lochdhu Lodge (1895-)

Description

This hunting lodge was built for Sir Tollemache Sinclair, of Ulbster, on the east bank of Loch Dhu in 1895. Due to its remote location materials were transported by rail to Altnabreac (opened 1874) and then taken the short distance south to the site.

The building is a two storey Scottish Baronial mansion. For a time this was a seasonal hotel (1960? to 1975).

The lodge remains standing in private ownership.
