Every Day is Ada Lovelace Day at The Torridon

Happy Ada Lovelace Day!

You may have heard about Ada Lovelace, daughter of Lord Byron. She was a 19th century mathematician, now credited as being the world’s first computer programmer thanks to her work on Charles Babbage’s Analytical Engine.

If you haven’t heard of Ada, you can find out all you need to know on Wikipedia – including the fact that, once she married William King, 8th Baron King, she became not only Baroness of a large resort at Ockham Park but also an resort by Loch Torridon.

You can probably guess where we are going with this. Yes, Ada Lovelace’s grand house in Scotland was none other than The Torridon and you can follow in her genteel footsteps these days on a stroll round the resort or down to tea in the drawing room.

Once a year, the world celebrates the accomplishments of women in mathematics, science, technology and engineering on Ada Lovelace Day.

However The Torridon has decided to celebrate these achievements every day of the year and henceforth, Room 2 at The Torridon will be known as Ada Lovelace.

Accounts of Ada’s time at Torridon are thin on the ground. If anyone out there has information about it we would love to know more.
