Statement of Interest

Lintrathen loch and surrounding lands were bought by the Dundee Water Commissioners in 1873 to supply the city of Dundee. The water level in the loch was raised, embankments built and pipes laid under the river Isla towards Dundee. The principal civil engineer on the works was James Leslie CE, however, the lodge, landscaping and planting was designed and carried out by James Watson CE, both were employed by the Dundee Water Commission. A J Warden thought that the "the very handsome lodge, its useful adjuncts, its tasteful surroundings and comfortable interior are in fine keeping with the loch and with the grand scenery around it".
