St Peter's December 2015a

In December 2013 I visited St Peter’s Seminary. I found it a real challenge to enter with serious fencing, wild undergrowth and all sorts of obstacles underfoot and overhead. As you will see from this photo I came away a bit scratched!

St Peter’s Seminary is the same age as I am. It is a modern ruin.

St Peter’s Seminary, just outside Cardross, was completed in 1967. The year I was born. It is now considered Scotland’s most important “modern ruin”
