Lecht Mine 2024

The last surviving building of what was once Scotland’s largest manganese mine is surrounded by piles of discarded iron ore on the north side of the Lecht Pass. An unexpected slice of history for such a remote location, and thankfully this industrial relic only enhances the glen in which it sits.


Address: 0.5 miles north of the A939 at Well of the Lecht Five miles southeast of Tomintoul Moray
