NS3180 : Old lodge gatepost

taken 6 years ago, near to Craigendoran, Argyll And Bute, Great Britain

Old lodge gatepost
Old lodge gatepost
At this point, a greatly overgrown track heads north-east, away from the main road. The presence of an elaborate gatepost suggested that there might once have been a lodge here.

The lodge is shown on the first-edition OS map (c.1860); as later maps reveal, it was called Mid Lodge, and, as that name suggests, it was one of three that were associated with Camis Eskan House (NS3281 : Craigendoran, Camis Eskan House). It was located in roughly the same place as the dense clump of vegetation that can be seen beside the gatepost.

The other two lodges survive: NS3280 : Camis Eskan East Lodge and NS3181 : Camis Eskan West Lodge.
