Duchal Castle – Kilmacolm

Duchal Castle in Kilmacolm, Scotland We have visited the remains of Duckal Castle in the past but it is always interesting to return to a location to see how it has changed. With a very old site like this, it can be very difficult to notice any real changes, especially when they have been in […]

Hilltop Farm

We stumbled upon this former farm building when looking for another location. We thought the farm was still in active use until we arrived to find it derelict and abandoned. From the condition of the building, we can only assume it has not been lived in for quite some time. All furniture and belongings have […]

Heathfield Farm – Ruins

The ruins are all that remains of the former Heathfield Farm located within The Clyde Muirshiel Regional Park. There are many ruins like this to be found all across Scotland and it […]
