House of the Year.
Watching House of the Year (episode 3) on BBC1 last night I was surprised to see Craigdun Castle featured.
I knew it as Peter Stott Martin House.
My first job was residential as a nursing auxiliary here, in the late 60's early 70's, when the house was run as a holiday home for people with MS.
The photo I have posted is a postcard and my bedroom was above the front door.
Later on I upgraded to the posh bedroom, the two windows 2nd floor up on the right of the house.
That room had a washbasin and wooden shutters and a desk that my sewing machine sat on -because even in those days I was sewing and used to make some of my clothes.
And up in the tower, that they talked about in the show, we played table tennis.
It never dawned on me that I was living in a castle!
