Pirniehall Residential School

I'm sure we have a thread for this topic, but can't find it after looking for bloody ages. Mods if you have any luck please merge.

Pirniehall was built originally in 1896 as a mansion house for Sir Alexander Murray, on an estate purchased from the Duke of Montrose, using stone from a Quarry a few miles away. The architects were John Archibald Campbell & Andrew Edwin Martin. In the 1940s Pirniehall was purchased by the old Dunbarton Council Education Department, who up until the late 1970s used the building as a residential school, giving many primary pupils a week's introduction to a simple early version of adventure activities. During the 1970s & 80s the site was altered for use as a residential education facility before closing in 1993. In the grounds of the school are two very tall trees, which were used by pilots during WW2 as markers to show them they were nearing their base.
