David Gray, born 29th January 1838, died 3rd of December 1861, was a Scottish poet. The son of a handloom weaver, Gray was born at Merkland. He began to write poetry for The Glasgow Citizen and began his idyll on the Luggie, the little stream that ran through Merkland. He was buried in the Auld Aisle, where he had often wandered, and which is also the subject of his song, and, on the 29th July, 1865, a plain obelisk was erected to his memory, subscribed for by his admirers. David wrote his own epitaph, " Below lies one whose name was traced in sand, He died, not knowing what it was to live ; Died, while the first sweet consciousness of manhood. And maiden thought electrified his soul, Faint beatings in the calyx of the rose. Bewildered reader ! pass without a sigh, In a proud sorrow ! There is life with God, In other kingdom of a sweeter air; In Eden every flower is blown. Amen. Thus lived and died one who left a few words only behind him, His Luggie, poem opens with the wish of the writer that his thought and verse may run as smoothly as his beloved river: That impulse which all beauty gives the soul, Is languaged as I sing.

Abandoned Girls Boarding Cottage School - Scotland, UK [05:12]
Build in 1896! I love the style of this place, I really wish such beautiful places weren't left to waste! Such a nice looking design, but unfortunately rather wrecked in certain parts. It would have been an amazing building before it closed. Apparently there's rotwiellers that are near by but luckily we didn't see them, although I'm sure there friendly enough! Built originally for Sir Alexander Murray and altered during the 1970s and 80s for use as a residential education facility. Fine entrance tower with bell cast roof. Harled walls with pink sandstone dressings. Mostly sash and case timber framed windows with 4-pane glazing to upper sash and double-pane to lower sash. Timber weather-slating, overhanging eaves and slate roofs.
