History taken from the net..

The House of Gray in Dundee is an early 18th century country mansion of moderate size.
It consists principally of a main block and two pavilions linked by two square stair turrets with ogee roofs.
The house was constructed between 1714 and 1716.
The name of the architect is not known, although the design was considered sophisticated enough to be included in
William Adam's book of contemporary house designs Vitruvius Scoticus.

Apparently there were plans to convert the house into a hotel, but not sure if they ran out of money or abandoned the plans
due to the recession.
It just seems like they decided to down tools, and board the place up!

The interior was a bit dissapointing :( as it had mainly been stripped, and the copper theives had started strip the wiring in places.
