The "fishing lodge" at Pundershaw never was. There are no fish in the loch owing to the level of acidity. The water is contaminated with liver fluke. It is many years since I stayed at the cabin which was called Skipjack. I do not know who built it, but I was told that the material came from a boat. Some of the windows are certainly portholes. I think it was around 1985-1986 when the cabin was last used. During the time I stayed there it was used by deer stalkers. The professional stalkers for the Forestry Commission were Derek Walton who lived at Pundershaw farm and Raffie Little who lived in Wark village.
