I have been in the Cardross area a few times, hill walking and a funeral but have never stumbled across the seminary
How the hell did a listed building get into that state, was nobody looking after it?
Is it a Concrete building?

Its mostly made from Pre-form Norrie it was only listed after the desertation by the catholic church and has mre to do with the architects than the design.

Pretty soon there will be nothing left to burn and it would have/Is a classic modern day ruin.

It's not exactly easy to stumble upon it but i bet you have been alongside it and never knew it was there such is its secluded location.

Hi fastnet, took me a  moment to figure out the first shot
Bet you took loads of shots in Paris
My wife keeps saying she would like to see it, maybe.
We just got back from WW1 war graves and battlefield tour, we were based at Ostende
We visited Brugge, Ypres and Blankenberg, first two are not to be missed
Blankenbeeg and Ostende are seaside towns, we enjoyed them
