Old Photograph Tormaukin Hotel Scotland


Old photograph of Tormaukin Hotel near Gleneagles, Perthshire, Scotland. Tormaukin Hotel, built in the 18th Century, was named after the hill that lies directly behind this old Drovers Inn. In Gaelic, “ Tor ” means Hill and “ Maukin ” means Hare. The name of the Scottish Glen Gleneagles has nothing to do with eagles, and is a corruption of eaglais or ecclesia, meaning church, and refers to the chapel and well of Saint Mungo, which was restored as a memorial to the Haldane family which owns the Gleneagles estate.
