Dalnacardoch  Perthshire

 

In 1882-4, Frances Groome's Ordnance Gazetteer of Scotland described Dalnacardoch like this:

Dalnacardoch, a shooting-lodge (erst a stage-coach hostelry) in Blair Athole parish, Perthshire, on the great Highland road from Perth to Inverness, and on the left bank of the Garry, 6¼ miles WNW of Struan station. Here Prince Charles Edward passed the night of 29 Aug. 1745; and here on 9 Oct. 1861 the Queen and Prince Consort, travelling incognito, had 'a shabby pair of horses put in, with a shabby driver driving from the box.'
