Clock Turret...

This clock tower is homed in a baronial turret on the sensational Hospitalfield House in Arbroath.

Appropriately enough, the house is used as an arts centre and used to be an artist's home. The interiors are a time capsule of Victorian life and full of fascinating things.

The owner also built an enormous, creepy mortuary chapel for his family which is housed in a nearby cemetery and is well worth a visit.

I discovered the house while lost on a badly signed road detour, which proves there is always a silver lining...

Silver lining indeed. You didn't get lost, you had an art-venture. :)

Dear Alison, always happy to churn out a wee pic for you...will work from photos. I have a mental block on anything bigger than A5 though...

Alison said...

Thank you! Don't worry, A5 or smaller is great :)
