NS3880 : South Lodge

taken 7 years ago, near to Alexandria, West Dunbartonshire, Great Britain

South Lodge
South Lodge
The building on the left, largely hidden by the wall, was the main (or south) lodge of Tullichewan Castle. The castle was demolished in the 1950s; however, the first part of the driveway from the lodge still exists.

According to Joseph Irving's "History of Dumbartonshire" (2nd edition, 1860), "an ancient burying-ground existed near the south lodge at Tillichewan, and a little streamlet which traverses this portion of the estate is still known as the 'Ghaistie-ford Burn'" [Scots "ghaist", for ghost]: see NS3880 : The Ghaistie-ford Burn for a view of the burn, and for further information.

Through the cold mist, an upright structure can be seen indistinctly in the background, near the left-hand edge of the image; it is NS3880 : Bonhill Parish War Memorial in NS3880 : Christie Park.
