Drimsynie House 7085

Lochgoilhead, Scotland

Brief Description

Drimsynie is a stone Scots Baronial style house in a park on the north-west edge of Loch Goil. The gardens took full advantage of the wonderful views and seem to have been peppered with stone urns. The house remains but the estate has been developed as a resort and the park has had cottages built on it.

History

Drimsynie was home to the Dempster family (see images) in the late-19th and early-20th centuries. John Dempster built the golf course below the house and used to moor his 104 tonne yacht 'Vol au Vent' below the golf course on the Loch. The Dempsters were at Drimsynie until around 1905 when they moved to Methven Castle, Perth.
