One of the nicest medical type spots I've seen in ages lurking about on public forums. Really, truly very nice and superbly shot. Gives a great idea as to the scale and geography of the place.

      2 visits to this place, this is a kind of mish mash of both trips, first with UAP and second alone


      round the back

      Kitchen


      bit of stair porn




      Now, on the way out I bump into a guy who lives on the estate, after chatting about the history of the place his wife pops along and mentions the mausoleum
      Then proceeds to tell me the route to find it in the forrest !
      Not the biggest of finds but certainly wasnt expecting that wwhen I woke up




      cheers

      This place has just had a major collapse in the building but I beleive the chapel is still ok
      GARTHLAND House, on the outskirts of Lochwinnoch, was one of Renfrewshire's most majestic mansions. The greyish-pink Tudor-style architecture of the two-storey building was enhanced by a pillared porch, elegant stairway, ivy-clad walls, pedimented portico, soaring chimneys, sloping roof and exquisitely-carved dormer and bay windows.
      Built in 1796 by David King for wealthy land-owner James Adam, Garthland was embowered by beautiful gardens embellished by manicured lawns, gravel paths, sprawling rhododendrons, towering conifers and fragrant flowers and herbs.
      Sadly the historic house is now but a shell of its former self. Today it lies derelict, abandoned and boarded-up in woodlands now overgrown and neglected. Yet still the old mansion clings tenaciously to its proud history. Even in the midst of its devastation it is not difficult to imagine Garthland in all its architectural and horticultural glory.
      Known originally as Garpel House then Barr House before becoming Garthland House, the regal residence was acquired by the Macdowall family who came initially from Garthland in Wigtownshire and were descended from the Lords of Galloway. During the mid-1930s, Henry Macdowall sold it to the Mill Hill Foreign Missionary Society that was founded. Garthland House was renamed St Jospeh's College by the Society and, during its heyday, around 30 young men were students there.
      A three-storey dormitory block was added in 1936 followed by a beautiful brick-red chapel in 1943. Both the sleeping quarters and the chapel can still be seen today although, like the house, they have fallen into disrepair and are but fragments of their former selves.






      I beleive this is where the collapse was (not suprising if I`m honest)


      Stairwell of 3 storey Dorm (stairwell was gutted with a fire, and the 3 story dorm was a dissapointment, but hey its the chapel that you are there for really)

      tell if too much of a write up, history is interesting but not everyones cup of tea
      cheers
