Think Jimmy Page also owned it. He did the 'No pylons' movement a big hand when he told the power companies to F*** off when they wanted to run lines over his estate :z4 :z4

Correct Hamish , it is an interesting but scary place . I have stayed in the gatehouse a few times  and it is wierd .  :shock

It is bloody eerie  :shock

OK, here's one for you.......

Which loch is this :?

I am one of the remotest lochs on mainland Scotland.

Although I hold a good head of Brown Trout, most anglers come for the Salmon and Sea Trout.

A stunning waterfall at one end attracts walkers and a fair walk is needed to get to my shores.

Harriers were common overhead here once, but these days it's more likely to be Typhoons or Eagles.

So..... which loch :? :? :? :?
