Driving up through Elderslie you come to a fork in the road, to the right lies Johnstone, a few hundred yards to the left lies the hotel, it's on the way to Lochwinnoch.

I'm looking for something a little more specific than that smartarse

I thought the directions to be precise and to the point, you want a fekkin map, doughball?  
Stuball

I typed that before you gave the directions

I remember being at a function there many years ago,at that time it was
rather a nice place.Sad to see the state of it now.

Spot on, Hollowhorn.

Stuball, It's on the Beith Road and you can't miss it. About 700 yards from the junction you'll have the road to the castle and a church on your left. The hotel's a couple of hundred yards past these on the right.
I've never been inside it in its current condition but the main building has no roof and looks fairly fragile from the outside. Your speciality I think.

Could that be the same development company that bought Lennox Castle?

I was there today... the door was open but the place was just too wrecked. As much as I like to wonder around derelict buildings, I have standards! The place stank and there was crap all over the place
