Balmaghie House, on the River Dee near Glenlochar, was built by Sir John Burnet for the Gordon family or Balmaghie in 1880 on the site of the much older property of the same name. In the 1960's the house suffered from a major fire, the first two floors were later filled in, leaving a small bungalow atop a large mound. The first mention of Gordons of Balmaghie is Thomas-Dempster Gordon of Balmaghill in 1811.
