    Default Ury House, Stonehaven, Scotland, Aug '08




    Here we are at Ury House near Stonehaven. Built in 1885 by Alexander Baird this was once used as the North East HQ of the Scottish Quakers.


    Our first view as we trampled across wet knee high grass.


    The main entrance.


    Crumbling stairs.


    The metal supports are still holding firm.




    An old boiler.
























    The coat of arms.




    From the air.
    In a surreal world it all makes sense

    What a fabulous building. Once you get inside though you soon realise the dereliction has been going on for a while. Such a shame to waste a building like this. I don't think it be standing for much longer though.

    Here are some of my photos from the visit










    Ury House was recently visited by Jack Nicklaus who is designing a new 18 hole golf course to be built around
    the house, which is to be made into a luxury hotel development.

    Nothing to do and all day to do it

    what a great place, The exterior is deceptive, it seems to have faired much better than the interior! So that guys is going to save the building then? thats good news:)

    Absolutely gorgeous building :)

    Reminds me of Crawford Priory somewhat...
    " ...I wasn't born of a whistle or milked from a thistle at twilight, no, I was all horns and thorns, sprung out fully-formed, knock-kneed and upright... "
