    NN46SW 2 40777 64752 - Corrour Old Lodge. The first Corrour Lodge, some 3 miles to the south of Loch Ossian on Carn Dearg, was 'the highest shooting lodge in Scotland, being 1,723 ft above the sea level'. Used as a sanatorium in the early 20th century, it was de-roofed in the 1930s and is now a gaunt ruin. (Reference: 'The Western Seaboard - an illustrated architectural guide -Mary Miers - (page 73) It was replaced in 1896 by the second Corrour Lodge, designed by Frank College of Wharr and College, Glasgow, with alterations and additions by l. and J. Falconer in 1904, three miles to the north, at the east end of Loch Ossian (NN46NW 1), and a century later by an even newer third Corrour Lodge (1999-2004) on the same loch-side site. Confusingly, the second Corrour Lodge may be referred to as the 'Old Corrour Lodge'. It is suggested that the term 'Corrour Old Lodge' be retained to refer to the first lodge only. Information from H P Dinwoodie, 14 January 2010.
