Balintore Castle

By lenocm
Balintore Castle. A once lovely old castle in Angus which has been unoccupied for 50 years and allowed to fall into a serious state of disrepair. It was abandoned because of extensive dry rot throughout the building, has been vandalised and has had many of its fittings, such as the fireplaces, stolen. However, work is now being undertaken to restore it, a massive task as all of the floors and ceilings have rotted away and new joists are having to be put in place to recreate the various storeys. New windows are being manufactured in a local town.
V1 was taken after the sun had come out and I was leaving the castle. Other versions were taken when I arrived and the castle was shrouded in mist.
