    Hi SR
    That's a really interesting looking church. Love that tower. The decoration on it looks quite unusual. Nice pics too.
    Cheers for that

    I do like this, that tower looks great. agree with foxy on that. :)

    What was all the scaffolding there for? was it to hold up the walls? or do you think they'll be redeveloping it (probably into more upmarket apartments, grrr!!)

    Very nice pics, do like this. thank you for sharing. and looking forward to finding out more.

    thanks again.

    :) Sal

    Thumbs up Re: Dunbarton Abbey/church


    Very nice pictures indeed me thinks -in particular the one looking up the tower.
    Looks like there's some hope of it being restored, with all the temporary supports.
