The recommended tune is ‘Dinnet House’. A fine Scots Baronial shooting lodge, Dinnet House lies on the north bank of the River Dee, a mile southwest of Dinnet and 5 miles west of Aboyne, in the Muir of Dinnet on the eastern edge of the Cairngorms National Park, Aberdeenshire. Built in 1890 for the English ship-owner and politician Charles Wilson (1833 - 1907), later Lord Nunburnholme, the architect was A. Marshall Mackenzie of Aberdeen. In 1896, the house and estate were sold to James Charles Barclay-Harvey, whose son Sir Charles Malcolm Barclay-Harvey (1890 - 1969), became Governor of South Australia. The house was altered following a fire in 1905 and a square tower added. A mile long avenue of lime trees opens out to reveal the house's magnificent Baronial splendour, standing at the centre of a 14,000 acre estate, which includes grouse moors, loch and river fishing and farming. The grounds to the house cover 50 acres alone.
