Where is the house?

Where is it and what is the significance of the house in the grey background photo ?

No idea, I could ask the programmer who put this in but it was a long time ago.

No idea I can’t see anything.No photo.

This one, I presume. The background image for iSpot UK & Ireland.

Thanks Thistle have now got the photo.

I hadn’t seen the water before. It is off the bottom of the photo. I suppose that mallard makes it a wildlife scene. If we can get the location, Derek in Orkney can include it in his new series of virtual records.

If you want another challenge try the cover photograph for the recent novel Ormeshadow. (The setting of the novel might be a fictionalised Brean Down, but the photograph is from elsewhere.)

I remember this.
