    Whilst on an afternoon country drive around here and checking out another venue, I decided to call into this place seeing as I was in the area.. Ended up spending a couple of hours on a solo explore.

    After coming back home and doing some research (and also realising, which I had suspected, that it was indeed well documented on here previously) what I found seemed quite sad in that the place sounded fantastic when it was in its heyday but do to vandalism and a fire it really is tragic how this lovely building has been left to rot..

    Stone Cross Mansion, built by Myles Kennedy in 1874 is a Gothic/ Scottish Baronial style building, and its central hall (which I spent a lot of time in/around/above and under.. as you do..:) ) looks like it would have been quite something before it was stripped of its arched paintings, which apparently depicted a scene from ‘Sleeping Beauty’ but using members of the Kennedy family.
    These are now gone… as is much of everything else unfortunately, but it still made for a nice afternoon wander around. Actually, looking through the pics and choosing which to upload (I didn’t take many), it looks like I really did spend most of my time either in the hall or on the roof.
    I found an old newspaper report of the fire here: -

    And here's my take of the place..

    I am so pleased to see the place still standing. Thought it would be full of dry rot and no roof by now.
    Have they not started work yet?

    Poor bloke had to sell his otterhounds because they had killed all the otters, then his foxhounds go down with rabies.
