Report - Poltalloch House near Kilmartin

    Went today for a look around this place. Took the following information from the Derelict places site:
    Poltalloch house was built by William Burn between 1849 and 1853 as a new seat for the Malcom family who had long held the lands of Poltalloch. The house was converted into flats early in the 20th century before being de-roofed in 1957 with all the contents and fixtures being sold.

    The house sits in one of the most beautiful locations I've ever seen, surrounded by miles of open space. This is all farmland now and unfortunately the house has become a bit of a dumping ground for farm waste. Its a huge place with lots of areas to explore, the sunken servants quarters to the rear have been described as 'the size of a small village'. The house itself is in a typically ruinous state with large parts of the floor having sunk into the basement and large pieces of the exterior stone having fallen inside. It's remote location means graffiti is minimal and it still retains an air of grandeaur with its floor to ceiling windows showing the breathtaking views. It would have been a stunning place to live.
