The Mystery House
As we drove along the country road we passed this house with the turret. I was so impressed I turned back - not easy on a country road.
What kind of a house has a turret? This is on a farm road in Ayrshire, in the middle of nowhere. I was even more intrigued by the big wrought iron gates. But the absolute mystery for us was the fact that underneath all the foliage on the turret, was a window. You can just see the bottom edge of it in the picture.
Now why would you have a house, with such a beautiful distinguishing feature, and let foliage cover the window? My son automatically started giving ideas - but they were all to do with spies and wizards.
I thought it could be a setting for a lovely romance novel, with a touch of mystery. What do you think?
