    Default Hilltop House - Oct 2017


    Came across this lovely house a few months back whilst out and about in the Scottish wilderness. I wasn't sure it was abandoned as it was pretty much intact! Can't find much history on it either.

    Although most of the upstairs rooms were pretty stripped, there was a lot of nice details left downstairs. This would make such a beautiful family home, so I hope it doesn't get wrecked.

    The light wasn't on our side so a revisit is definitely in order to capture what we missed!

    That is absolutely lovely. From the pics you posted I’d say light was on your side, gives a nice cold edge. It may have been a pain shooting in dying light but you got some great shots. Nothing wrong with a revisit under different conditions though! Great find and beautiful images. Heading back to Scotland to see my folks in a couple of weeks so this has got me itching to get up there now, got a lot of places lined up!

    Nice shots. That house could be renovated, its in such a good condition. I like the AGA, the fireplace in the sitting room and the piano. A nice find.
    When the going gets tough - the tough get going.

    Thanks guys! It totally could be renovated, I think it's being looked after somewhat by someone so hopefully it's kept safe from idiots

    Actually I'd disagree, it looks like you got some pretty nice winter light in the earlier shots, and the final one captures the blue light you get in the NE of Scotland after the sun goes below the horizon. I'm not usually a fan of residential explores, but this looks pretty decent. :)
