Millbank House

Situated at Kettleholm near Lockerbie; these are the ruins of a two and three story mansion built in the 1890’s in the Scots Baronial style. It was abandoned circa 1960.

By photos,poetry and haiku by Derek Ross

I am a photographer/ poet from Dumfries in South West Scotland. I concentrate on minimalist images and prefer using an iPhone these days. As far as my writing is concerned, I usually write short poems (some in Scots dialect), hence my interest in haiku and related forms.


    1. Aye, would be great to see Carnsalloch put to good use. However, It’s in a very poor state and cordoned off. Last time I tried there was a nutter in a caravan living there who threatened anyone who came close! He’s not there now but the building is dangerous.
