    Default St. Peters Seminary, Cardross, March 2011.


    Went out and visited St. Peters Seminary today, and what a magnificent place it was. Built in the 1960's, it was used as a college for trainee priests and such. It's a post-modern building, with heavy influences of Le Corbeisuer, the famous Swiss architect.

    Eh. I thought I replied to this once. It must have been eaten by the internet pixies.

    I know a priest who trained here. He said that people thought it looked lovely, until they had to spend a few nights there. It was impossible to heat, always damp, and needed constant repair. A disaster from start to finish.
