Hi folks, I thought I should finally post a report rather than just browsing so I hope it is OK.

I know that there are quite a few posts on here about St Peter's, but for anyone who doesn't know it here is a quick blurb copied from Wiki.

St. Peter's Seminary is a disused Roman Catholic seminary near Cardross, Argyll and Bute, Scotland. Designed by the firm of Gillespie, Kidd and Coia, it has been described by the international architecture conservation organisation DOCOMOMO as a modern "building of world significance".It is one of only 42 post-war buildings in Scotland to be listed at Category A, the highest level of protection for a building of "special architectural or historic interest".It has been abandoned since the end of the 1980s, and is currently in a ruinous state. Despite a number of proposals for reuse or renovation of the building, its future remains insecure.

So on with the report, I travelled up to St Peter's with my good mate and fellow 28DL newbie PirateBaz, we had been here once before ,but the view as round the bend to find this monster in the middle of the forest still quite breathtaking! We managed to explore all of the main building this time, last time we went it was a bit last minute and the light got the better of us, needless to say we were suitable impressed, the scale of the place is just unbelievable, anyway here are some of the shots I got while spending a few happy hours wandering about.
