Old Photograph Glenquoich Lodge Scotland

Old photograph of Glenquoich Lodge by Loch Quoich in Lochaber in the Highlands of Scotland. Before the widespread clearances of the 1780s, the shores of Loch Quoich were fringed with settlements and good grazing land. Edwin Landseer was among many fashionable sportsmen who came here in the 19th century, and his best known paintings were inspired by the red deer of Glen Quoich. The flooding of Loch Quoich destroyed Glenquoich Lodge, built for Edward Ellice, Member of Parliament, in 1838; extended by Alexander Ross around 1900 for Lord Burton of Dochfour, a tenant from 1873 to 1905, who poured money into the place. Situated near the mouth of Allt Coire Peitireach, it started life fairly spartan, `furnished in the simplest manner, with cane bottomed chairs and iron bedsteads, but became one of the most fashionable shooting lodges of its day.
