Millden Lodge

A shooting lodge at the centre of the Millden Estate, Millden Lodge is a substantial granite construction dating from the early 19th C. which overlooks the River North Esk. The ten-bedroom lodge presents a double-bow front to the river with a solitary circular tower to the east. Extended in the middle of the 19th C., it now comprises a somewhat rambling property which includes a fine wood-panelled dining room and snooker room. B-listed since 1971, the lodge still provides accommodation for shooting parties. The estate extends to 7801 ha (19,276 acres) and is known for its grouse moor, regarded as one of the best in Scotland where a record of 8159 brace were shot in 1931. The estate also offers pheasant shooting and fishing for salmon, sea trout and brown trout. In 2004, the property was sold by the philanthropist Dame Vivien Duffield to Richard Hanson a London-based private equity fund manager.
