How do!

Back again, this time doing something a bit different...

This is the Dalquharran Castle up in South Ayrshire, Scotland. This is a castle style mansion which has now been taken over by nature, it's a beautiful building however.

As always, I created a video here with drone footage, history, etc.



Brief history (more in depth in the video):
Dalquharran Castle was built in 1785, it passed through many hands and the building served many purposes until it had the roof removed in the 1960s and to this day the castle just sits abandoned.

Explore:
The explore was pretty relaxed, I picked quite a wet day so the trek to it was a bit boggy and dirty but once at the castle, it was chilled!

Anyways, on with the pictures...

The castle itself...

Starting at the back near the old stables/workshops, wasn't too much to see but the doors were nice :rolleyes:

Inside the actual castle was nothing short of stunning, I personally love the whole "nature taking over" look, I know it won't be to everybody's taste but I think it's cool!

The architect Robert Adam often made interesting places with unique features, one of the special features of this place were the spiral staircases, the grand one and the one which would've been used by the servants to get into the basement/kitchen without being seen.

And to finish it off, a couple of drone shots...

Some great pics and like the ones from the drone, good effort :thumb

9.22 minutes is a bit long for me to watch a video, quick flick through and looks not too bad.

Cheers mate :thumb

Fair enough, videos aren't everyone's thing, I thought 9 minutes was quite short. I'm guessing you don't like the hour long Go-Pro walk throughs then haha :rolleyes:

The way you have reported this is very comprehensive, photos, video as well as the use of a drone. I do like the dedication :thumb

I'm not a fan of video reports in general, so tend to just skip them rather than waste my time. I have wasted plenty of time when they first started appearing, but very few are as good as a well written report with photos.

It's not just exploring, there are so many poor videos of people climbing, mountain biking, skiing, canoeing etc. Just my choice in what what format I enjoy wasting my time viewing ;)
