Religious Convent

It made sense to visit this house whilst returning from our weeklong Scotland trip in September with @jtza and @huyt.urb . It was a comfortable explore to conclude the trip on, which doesn't look too good for the property's future. As we prepared to leave, 7-8 lads turned up and headed inside. Hopefully, the building has been secured in the last few months, because it was in relatively good condition for an unprotected manor with not much surrounding it.

Starting off in the main house, we didn't spend long on the lower floors as the architecture seemed to improve the higher and more central you went. Highlights were definitely the repeating stained glass patterns, the central balcony overlooking a depleted statue of Jesus and an arched corridor leading to various boardrooms and offices.

A rather nice corridor.

This curving bannister was awesome.

The central space looked to have been slightly modernised over the years but still retained it's dated architecture.

Moving to one end of the site, you come across a chapel that is totally opposite to the empty rooms throughout the house. Everything is still inside as if the last service finished yesterday. According to what I've heard, it was sealed separately to the rest of the manor, but broken open not too long before we visited.
