A Scots artist named Duncan Tattersall has created an online blog called Ruination Scotland to share his passion for art inspired by derelict and ruined buildings. One of his first postings is about Barnbarroch House, known to many as the ancestral home of the Vans of Barnbarroch (the family thought to be the origins of the Vances of DNA Group 1) which was ruined by fire in 1941. Mr. Tattersall has written a very nice article about a visit he recently made to the ruins of Barnbarroch on his blog at http://ruination-scotland.com/2012/11/05/ruin-of-the-month-barnbarroch-house/, complete with pictures of the ruins and others like the one shown here of the house in its heyday. If you're not familiar with Barnbarroch House this is a great introduction to it.
More information about the artist and his work is available on his blog.
