    This is a cracking viewpoint Roddy and those red flowers in the foreground are a perfect introduction to proceedings.

    those reds go well with the greens and that’s an atmospherically charged cloud hanging overhead too.

  • Many thanks Stuart, it is an impressive building with great grounds. It’s a good day out especially if your with kids. We were their with my girlfriends niece and nephew who particularly enjoyed the archery and falconry / bird of prey display. Their is a great adventure playground too, plenty to keep them occupied while you wander off to take pictures.
