Glencairn-Raymond Pitcairn's castle

Recommended Posts

I took a tour of this house today. It was started in 1928 and finished in 1939. Actually the guide said it was not really finished. When you see the unfinished brick ceiling, that was supposed to have mosaic tile, but the Mrs. was getting tired of waiting.

Here are a handful of pictures showing the detail and workmanship. Without seeing it in person it is hard to fully appreciate. The large room is the living room. Most of the woodwork is teak.

The small house is adjacent to the castle. That was Raymond's father"s house. Note the small carriage house off to the side.
