    Not been over the east of Scotland for many years, but as I'm planning of holidaying up there this year I might have to have a look at that place

    An inscription indicates that the Prop was built by the tenants of Haddo estate in memory of George Gordon, 4th Earl of Aberdeen who made a great number of improvements to Haddo House, the estate and the quality of life of his tenants. It was built in 1840 or something. There is a cool spiral staircase that goes right to the top where you can see the countryside. I met an old couple there today who told me that a cow went up the steps 40 odd years ago and couldn't get down so the farmer shot it and tossed it over the edge........ a lovely wee story.
