Pitmain Lodge (Front Entrance)

This photograph shows the front entrance to Pitmain Lodge, a large country house in Glen Gynack, near Kingussie. Pitmain was built around 1913 by James Douglas Fletcher of Rosehaugh. He used it as a shooting lodge in order to pursue his love of grouse and deer shooting. The lodge changed hands several times and was occupied during World War II by the R.A.S.C. (Royal Army Service Core) and by Norwegian units.

Pitmain was a prominent landmark in the glen. It had red brick walls which was unusual for the area. It contained 364 windows and 126 doors and internally, there were many examples of fine workmanship including wood panelling in oak, teak, pine and walnut. In 1957 Pitmain was demolished by the then owners, Teocarlo Ltd
