The above image is detail taken from the photograph shown in the previous post. It focuses on the western edge of Drummochy. The gable end of Drum Lodge can just be made out among the trees in the top right corner. This house (previously known as Drummochy House or Drumochie House) was built around the late 18th or early 19th century and once had extensive park land and a garden with many fruit trees. A boundary wall can observed (partially lined with trees) separating Drum Lodge grounds from what seems to be more of a communal grass area (possibly an old bleaching green) and some cultivated land adjacent to the Net House. The open area to the right of the Net House would soon be built upon. Drum Park comprises sixteen houses, in two terraces of eight, with a commanding position above the sea wall. Known also as 'Drum Lodge Park' in its early days, this development met a demand for seaside accommodation on this popular part of the Fife coast.
