Castle Survey 2007

One of the obligations when I bought Balintore Castle in 2007 was to provide Angus Council with a survey of the castle at time of purchase. The resulting plans, photographic survey and inventory constitute a historic "snap-shot" of the building pre-restoration. Many thanks to Dr. Paul Bradley for his artful and accurate draftsmanship. He even recorded the holes in the floors and the vegetation on the building. 

However, I have only just managed to digitally scan-in the plans and thought this blog would be the best place to make these publically available. I needed some window plans scanned-in for email communication,  and thought it was about time to get the lot done.

Below the survey's floor-by-floor plans are presented in bottom to top order, and then the elevations are presented in anti-clockwise order starting from the west entrance fa├žade. The images in this blog are limited by Google to be around 1k x 1k resolution, however you can access the original 8k x 8k scans on this link for the high resolution versions.

    1. Thanks for your comments Simon. I love your miniature interiors - if only the fireplaces I bought for Balintore Castle could be moved about as easily as yours! :-)

    2. Lol
      You'd be surprised at the relative hassle they present! Great to hear more of your news.
