Annick Lodge, from Memorials of the Montgomeries (1859).

MISS MONTGOMERIE OF ANNICK LODGE STRATHSPEY. Scottish, Strathspey (whole time). Composed by Hugh Montgomerie, 12th Earl of Eglinton, and printed in his New Strathspey Reels for the Piano Forte, Violin and Violoncello (1796, p. 2), a volume published by the Gows in Edinburgh. The strathspey was composed for one of his nieces, the daughters of his brother, Alexander Montgomerie (d. 1802) of Annick Lodge, Ayrshire. They were Elizabeth (d. 1822), Hamilla (d. 1852), Charlotte, and Frances (d. 1858).

Annic Lodge is a delightful residence. It is situate on the south side of the Annick Water, and truly Arcadian in its character. It is shut in behind by a high wooded bank, and overlooks a plain of the richest verdure, stretching out as far as the eye can reach, and flanked on both sides with gently rising hills partially covered with wood.
