Wonderful architecture of this once proud building set amongst beautiful Scottish Countryside. So sad to see such an architectural gem in such a state of neglect and disrepair . Affords some wonderful evocative photography.

This is a good view but is derelict and dangerous. Signs warn against entering the ruin. Worth viewing and photographing. Itis close to Celtic FC Training Ground.

After a walk through woodlands a nice castle could be seen. Such a shame that the castle is in ruin. It has a very interesting history, it was a psychiatric hospital in XX century.

Such a shame it has fell into such disrepair. Beautiful building with a vast history. Mainly closed off and fallen in on itself but worth a visit
