Suisgill Lodge, Strath of Kildonan

A view of Suisgill Lodge, in Strath of Kildonan, Sutherland, after being damaged by fire in the 1980s. The name Suisgill could originate from a hybrid of Gaelic and Norse, with 'suis' being a translation from Norse for 'roaring' and 'gil' meaning 'ravine' in Gaelic.

Located in the vicinity of the Helmsdale River, the lodge was well situated to attract those looking to fish in one of Scotland's greatest salmon rivers.
