Statement of Interest

Hopeman Lodge was built by William Young of Burghead and

Inverugie during his ownership of Hopeman 1803-17. The

property was sold in 1817 to William Stewart, and again

in 1837 to Admiral Duff of Drummuir, in whose family it

remained until circa 1970. The extensive 1911-12 alterations

were effected by Thomas Gordon-Duff of Drummuir, when the

former rear lower ground floor carriage house was converted

to service quarters, and the side wings advanced to form

U-plan frontage.

Gordon-Duff motto inscribed on plaque at rear reads:

'Kind hearts be true

And ye shall never rue.'
