Gelston Castle has a fascinating history, but at the present time, the current owners have chosen to use the grounds for a variety of music festivals. This summer, Moe.down was held here. Approaching the property, the garish sign is impossible to miss...
a packed gravel road leads to the iron gated entrance: (the sign says "No entry without permission". Nobody's around, so I decide to continue up the drive...)
It's hard-packed gravel, and the TW has no trouble climbing the gentle hill... I get to a tree with signs that obviously were put up for the big music festival last month.
further up the road is the Henderson House, the first structure built on the property. You can see the remains of the castle in the background
