History of Crispie Estate


Crispie House was originally the Dower House for the Nichol family who owned Ardmarnoch Estate for generations up until the 1980’s.

During the Second World War the house was used to train the Norwegian Commandos who went back to Norway to destroy the German Heavy Water (used in their nuclear weapons programme) factory which they were building. Some locals claim that Winston Churchill visited Crispie during the war.

Crispie was bought by my family in 1960 and extensively redeveloped into what you see today. Further land was added in the 1990’s (we now have about 50 acres in total) and Crispie Lodge was built in 1999.
