ARTHUR BIGNOLD OF LOCHROSQUE PDF

Sir Arthur Bignold is at dinner at Lochrosque Lodge when his butler is summoned to the door. He is surprised to be confronted by an armed raiding party led by no less than the First Lord of the Admiralty, Winston Churchill! Driving past Lochrosque en route to inspect the Royal Navy base at Loch Ewe, Churchill had noticed the searchlight at the top of the tower:- Picture by kind permission of Helen Murchison, Achintraid On arrival at Loch Ewe, he was informed of an unidentified aeroplane seen in the area a very rare occurrence in and began to suspect the searchlight could be part of a plot to guide enemy aircraft Zeppelins, perhaps to the fleet in Loch Ewe. In fact, the searchlight was for spotting deer on the surrounding hillsides at night by the reflections of their eyes to make it the easier to hunt them the next day - unsporting, perhaps, but hardly treasonable. Unconvinced, the First Lord had the light disabled and, upon his return to London, ordered the Intelligence Services to investigate Bignold, his guests, friends and servants. Sir Arthur Bignold died in or in other accounts , his reputation as a patriot intact.

If anyone does know the facts of the demolition, do leave a comment. Known as Lochrosque "Old Lodge", it still exists and is the building in the left foreground in the picture below. The buildings in the right foreground are, I think, the Home Farm buildings of the New Lodge visible behind. Most of them have gone now as well. But the existing buildings south of the road are, in fact, the Old Lodge plus a gate lodge and the remains of some of the home farm steadings built in association with the New Lodge on the other side of and slightly further along the road:- The Old Lodge left with the later gate lodge behind the trees to the right The Old Lodge is a single storey listed building and, according to its Historic Scotland citation , it was built around Buildings of that age are pretty scarce in this part of the country and considering the literally hundreds of times I must have driven past, I never knew one existed behind these familiar walls just past Achnasheen.

You can see details of his speeches to Parliament on the Hansard website a tremendous free resource for local history. Before the First Lord A J Balfour - later Prime Minister and whose ancestors had, by coincidence, owned the neighbouring Strathconon Estate until could even answer, Sir Arthur Bignold of Lochrosque rose to remind the House that, in 30 years, only one person had ever been evicted to extend a deer forest.

The three estates are excellent examples of what can be done with deer in a short time, for when Mr. Bignold first bought the property, there was nearly as good a chance of meeting with a Red Indian as of coming across a red deer.
