    Default Kincaldrum House, Scotland - January 2018


    Kincaldrum House is very close to where I grew up, and I have visited a quite a few times over the last 10+ years so I have watched it slowly crumble away. My favourite visit was in winter when it was covered in snow. I have been holding off visiting with my camera for a while knowing I would be home in January, so I was hoping to photograph it looking all snowy and beautiful. But I missed the snow here by a few days haha!

    This is how she used to look:

    Now she is reduced to this:











































    Thanks for looking!

    Nice one Brewtal. Second your comments about the snow, first saw this place many years ago just after a period of heavy snow - magnificent! Like the fact that you have included images of the old DC generator control panel for the house and stable lighting. There was much more of the plant still in situ back then; interestingly one could see similar installations in other large mansion ruins from that era, all over the UK.

    Such a nice house at one time and reduced to this dereliction. Interesting DC generator control panel and the maids bells.

    Cheers for the link. I have a family friend who bought a dilapidated manor nearby years and years ago and did the place up, his wife wanted to keep the rusty old Aga and the bells as they were because they were the only bits that could be left without throwing money at!
