    Default Crosbie Tower Care Home, Troon


    Crosbie tower sits facing the sea in Troon Scotland. The Italianate style villa has had a number of uses over the years including a wine merchant, the church of scotland and most recently being used as a care home.

    Its difficult to establish exactly when it closed but i gather it was around three years ago. To date the place has suffered little if any vandalism and the carpets and fittings are dry and clean.

    Visiting with Havoc this was a most pleasing and relaxed explore only ruined by the paranoid behavior of Havoc insisting we has been spotted, were going to get arrested and he could hear someone in the place who was going to stab us any minute with a needle -.- As I consequence I must apologies for my rushed rather crappy photos...
