Default Glasshaugh House, Aberdeenshire, March 2012

My visit to Glasshaugh House, Aberdeenshire. It has been posted here before, but here is my attempt.

Glasshaugh House was probably built by General James Abercrombie between 1759 (when he retired from the army) and his death in 1781 and extended and re-cast for Arthur Abercrombie in 1840 by the famous Scottish Architect Archibald Simpson.

Once used to house livestock: chickens on the second floor, pigs on the first - who reached their pens via the principal staircase- and cows on the ground.

It has lay empty for around 60 years, the owner lives next door to the property but it appears it will be left to decline further. The roof is very poor condition and there is quite a bit of wet rot amongst the floor joists, I didn't venture very far from solid ground
