    Default Old house, Near Kinnoull, Perth, Scotland March 09


    Hello again.
    On a Roadtrip on the back roads of the Kinnoul area near Perth I came upon this old ruin. Unfortunately it was situated moreorless in the back garden of the neighbours, who were keeping an eye on me, so I couldnt really get in.

    Oh, how lovely! That birdbath is utterly delightful...it brings a smile to my face, it's so funny!
    The house isn't bad either! ;)
    Nice find, SP. :)
    I really love that birdbath!!!

    Looks like it must have been a nice place in it's day...

    Seems a little bizarre how fooked the first floor is, compared to the lack of damage on the ground floor

    Someone's obviously keeping the grass cut.
    Look out, we're being invaded
    Hang on to your head
    We're being raided.

    Looks like it would have been a nice home at one time.

    That is an odd one - looks like the top floor has gone on fire - but then the bottom half looks ok....... very weird :)

    Looks like it may have been "unroofed" so that the owners could avoid paying inheritance taxes on it? That was the fate of many large, and not so large houses, after the War.

    The first shot makes the house look like it's still lived in until you notice there's no roof.
