Once a grand country pile, this abandoned mansion may stand in ruins but its former elegance has not been entirely lost. Lathallan House was built in 1826 as the home of a wealthy shipbroker with interests in nearby Grangemouth. Designed by architect Thomas Hamilton, the crumbling form of the B-listed Baronial mansion occupies a commanding position on the landscape of Polmont near Falkirk. Over the years, since eventually falling empty, Lathallan House has been subjected to the ravages of time, vandalism and the elements, which have combined to render the property little more than an empty shell. In 2006, the house was devastated by fire, and remains on Scotland’s Buildings at Risk register.

Abandoned Scotland documented the ruins of Lathallan House in the above video. Their footage includes the forgotten belongings of former residents found throughout the home, reflecting that even in derelict places, reminders of life endure.
