Glaisnock Mansion House, n 1833 this grand house was built for a large family (The Allasons), in 1968 it became a school for rural students of the area and in 2015 it became fully abandoned.
Glaisnock House
The house has been extended over the years to what can be seen today.
Little is known about the Allason's accept they were high ranked in the military and involved in politics.
In the mid 1800s, the Estate passed from the Allason family to Captain Robert Campbell of Auchmannoch in the parish of Sorn.
The estate was broken up around 1949 with the mansion being bought by the County Council. The Council opened Glaisnock in 1952 as a junior secondary school. The school specializing in rural education, took in boarders as well as day pupils. Glaisnock was operated as a four year school from 1968 until its closure in June 1973.
The house was built around 1833, it was designed by James Ingram of Kilmarnock for a Mr James Allason however the house has been extended over the years, not much is known about Mr Allason except that he ranked highly in the military and had some involvement in politics.
The estate was then bought by the County Council and opened as a secondary school in 1952. The school took in boarding students as well as day pupils from 1968 until its closure in June 1973.
The house was bought by a Chinese man in 2014 but he died suddenly from a brain tumour back in August 2015, the result of this was that the plans to renovate the building into a Chinese language and cultural centre were held up, all work stopped at the building back in 2015 and it has been left derelict ever since.

Braemar, Highland Scotland (By AlbionDrones)

The small town/village of Braemar, bisected by the Vlune Water, and nestled in the Cairngorm.

Sdly it as extremely windy on ou visit, so I only managed a short flight, but the river is stunning, there are plenty of historic buildings, and being surrounded by woodland and mountains - with a Caastle in the distance it makes for a fine subject...

There are good car parking options, a few decent shops to look around and several TOAL options, marked on the map, feel free to ad other markers as you find them...

Dalnaglar Castle, Glen Shee (By AlbionDrones)

A stunning Baronial Castle glimpsed from the roadside.

Park up in the car park for the Clach na Coileach, and you can see the castle at about 500m away, behind some trees. Best approach would be to fly a little down the glen, then turn and fly up to the castle, with it being visible rather than being hidden by trees, but as can be seen I was chancing the mizzly weather, so wanted to keep the flight time to an absolute minimum...

Spud Wood (By AlbionDrones)

Spud Woods in Lymm, park in the free car park, short walk over Grantham's Bridge - over the Bridegwater Canal - and then lots of options as to where to fly.

For a drone meet up turn right and follow the path to the meadow with the picnic bench and 2 other benches and its a nice open field to fly over alongside the woodland and canal - for the adventurous there are the woodland paths to fly through...

Walk straight ahead to the central clering, about 60m wide and about 1/4 mile long, bending left, sheltered between the trees..

Turn left and another much smaller meadow alongside the canal.

Easliy accessible with a shorter walk than Beacon Fell on what appears to be good solid ground.

A good few families walking, and dot walkers, but no-one had issue with the drones being flown, there are no 'no drone' signs, and nothing online I can find - owned by the Woodland Trust, who don't seem to have a drone policy on their website...
