During periods of heavy rain the lawn to one side of Kindrogan House floods – we often refer to it as ‘Loch Kindrogan’. In the run in to Christmas we had an unprecedented amount of rain, well, the most for a few years anyway! Our rainfall for the month was 215mm. Every day Loch Kindrogan expanded until it was actually lapping against the walls of the House, a bit of a concern, especially as that corner houses our valuable library. Loch Kindrogan is not static water, it actually flows from the fields to the north, across our grounds and in to the river.
Luckily the rain eventually eased off, and Loch Kindrogan gradually fell back and disappeared – until the next time.
