As I've said before, I am originally from the North of Scotland, my folks live just outside Inverness and the entire area is just chock a block with beautiful scenery, walks, beaches, old and historic sites, I love it. That said, so is Wales so my retirement plans are difficult.
Anyway, we visited Cromarty several times, I'll maybe post some more abandoned stuff form there, and across the mouth of the firth is an old building .... I've always wondered. So, on one of my after work explorations, I drove there.
I think it's still a lovely old building, the main house long gone .... sad to see it left to rot.
The site has been cleared, a little, or, is being? Not to sure. Some surrounding buildings have almost been buried and they look extremely interesting.
There's an open door in the rear which allowed access to the building itself and it's still in decent condition.
One of the outhouses had a lovely old chair and remains of an old suitcase.
The downstairs was in total darkness, all the windows being covered up but, upstairs was open and accessible
I loved all the woodwork, still in good condition, the floors all dry and secure.
At the other end of the corridor, up a couple of steps was, what I imagine to be a bar area?
I could almost imagine doing this up, what a lovely space to live in. The surrounding area is beautiful, peaceful.
One of the buildings at the rear has had beautiful windows in it, was it a church, chapel?
After a good wander around, I headed up onto the headland, there are wartime structures up there
It was only after researching the area, recently, that I came upon this brochure
