I'm out on the FJ again. At this time of year I have a minor panic. Although still August, the chill of autumn is here so I try to get out when I can. Today I'm in Galloway, a favourite area of mine in South West Scotland.
By chance I came across a couple of buildings of interest.
Firstly Corseyard Farm, known as Scotland's "Coo (cow) Palace". This was a dairy farm build by a wealthy retired merchant. Constructed in the early 20th century in the style of a castle. Details & old photos here
The building had become derelict but luckily a developer is converting it into holiday accommodation (and using the Coo Palace name!) see here
