Winter Wonderland

winter wonderland at Balintore Castle
Given this season's failure of Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen's "Winter Wonderland", it behooves us to appreciate that the current super-abundance of snow in Scotland and the county's heritage, can themselves create a genuine winter wonderland without artifice or refunded admission charges.

Andy was up on the roof to check chimney operation a few days ago and snapped this wonderful photo.  Sometimes a blog entry needs no more justification than the right image!


  1. Amazing pic!
    And amazing work youre doing there mate!
    Paul Bradley introduced me to Balintore, he's as mad for such places as I am!
    Keep up the good work!

    1. Thanks for your kind words Tony. The demands of the restoration are more than keeping Paul and myself busy. Cheers, David

  2. i applaud you guys for all the amazing work , you are helping stop another piece of history succumbing to the time and elements this i see in my business on a daily occurrence its a shame to see these historical places which stood a major landmark in our history be forgotten if only there were a lot more of you guys out there .. Keep up the good work !!!!

  3. Dear David,

    i have just found your blog today but already read it from the very beggining till the latest post. All the reconstruction you and your friends do is amazing. I even can't imagine how difficult it is ... but also interesting and insiring, of course! I have a passion for castles since childhood, but in Russia we don't have many of them (i'm from Moscow)... I moved to Italy recently and i may say that fortunatelly there are a lot of castles here!

    Good luck with your work! And hope to see blog updates soon!

    Best wishes,
