More about this scene

Caption for Helensburgh, Ardencaple Castle 1901: A large number of country houses, many of which were called castles by their owners, have either been demolished or are shadows of their former selves. For instance, Woolmet finished up in the middle of what became a coalfield; the land surrounding both Kincraig and Melville was given over to caravans; and the Strathleven estate became an industrial estate. Ardencaple was demolished in 1957.
