Drumour Schoolhouse
Drumour Schoolhouse
A small but typical example of a Victorian parish/community schoolhouse. Built in the 1850s alongside the then 'new' road (A822). This route was made possible by a bridge, 1 mile east, across a ravine below the Hunting Lodge. The name derives from the hill, Drumour (gaelic big hill), which the new bridge and road helped to avoid. The school probably started as a small faith based school funded by the Free Kirk with a minister as teacher. The building was extended when it came under local authority control. However due to re-organisation and falling rolls it became a private dwelling in the 1960s.
