Statement of Interest

An attractive entrance lodge, probably constructed in around 1825, when Duchray Castle was restored/remodelled (RCAHMS with reference to O S Name Book for Drymen parish). It is situated along the principal route of entry from Aberfoyle. The castle/estate was owned by the Graham family from when it was built in the late/later 16th century until the 1940's. See separate list description for Duchray Castle.
