    Default Bookworm House - Scotland - January 2018


    Visited this rather grand old manor on a snowy afternoon which certainly made a nice backdrop as we saw it appear through the trees. I've borrowed the name from mookster's report, as the books really are the most significant thing left behind!

    Although it was reportedly abandoned in 2005, we did find lots of letters from 2013, including a court summons to a man who was charged with possession of a blade in a public place!





















    I think these are the old buttons for the servant's bells, sadly the actual bells are no where to be found.
















    I loved this tile creation on one of the bathroom walls, showing the house and all the squirrels and rabbits who must have visited the gardens over the years, as well as the grandparents possibly?

    Brilliant pictures of what seems to be quite a remote location and the snow is a lovely touch.
