With Blantyre’s newest building now firmly on the map, it’s worth a reminder just how run down Crossbasket USED to be. These photos courtesy of Urban Environments page “28 days later” show the state of the interior of the listed building, back in 2010 and into 2011. This was around the time the new owners bought it, but before any work had commenced.
Today, Crossbasket Castle has had a remarkable £9m transformation and is the absolute height of 5 star luxury.

Jean McIntosh It is great to see this building carefully and beautifully renovated after years of deterioration and vandalism. I always dreaded that the vandals would set it on fire. It is a credit to the owners and all who worked on it, they should all be proud.
