As you can tell from the photographs, the sash windows on the principal floor are enormous - the biggest in the castle. Five of us carried each window from the van to the drawing room, where they are now awaiting installation. For one of the windows I left the others to it, and recorded the trip in photographs. Knees were definitely buckling even more.
I can barely wait for these windows to be installed as they will make a significant different to the look of the outside of the castle, and bring much needed light into the castle's interior - currently rather dark as the window openings are boarded up.
Above all, I am looking forward to looking through the bay window in the drawing room, as the looks southwards across the Quharity Glen: the very view that caused the castle to be build in the first place, in its elevated position on the side of Cat Law mountain.
