Drumintoul Lodge

A sizeable Victorian shooting lodge on the Rothiemurchus Estate, Drumintoul Lodge is located a half-mile (0.8 km) northeast of Coylumbridge. Built in 1878, it was let for shooting and stalking. During World War II, Norwegian Special Forces trained here (and at Glenmore Lodge) for the famous raid on the Norsk Hydro Plant at Telemark, which successfully disrupted the German programme to build an atom bomb. Buildings used by the commandos can still be seen on the tree-lined driveway leading to the lodge. In 1960 Drumintoul became the family home of the Grants of Rothiemurchus, who modernised the property. The family moved to The Doune in 1991 and Drumintoul is now rented for corporate hospitality events and weddings and benefits from its own trout loch nearby.
