Ghastly makeover of Ossian’s Hall, The Hermitage, Dunkeld, Scotland

I visited the Hermitage in Dunkeld yesterday. Originally this was a landscaped garden designed for the Duke of Atholl. Ossian’s Hall is a folly built in 1758 as a viewing point for the Falls of Braan. I have visited the Hall many times of the years to enjoy the beautiful view.

The National Trust for Scotland has renovated the Hall and I could not believe how awful it is now painted a crimson red with gaudy mural tiles which are already hanging off the walls. I spoke to other visitors to the Hall and they all agreed that it looked terrible. What do you think?
