West Eninteer, the story of a farmstead.

West Eninteer is perhaps a fairly typical Aberdeenshire farmstead in many respects. It nestles amongst the beautiful rolling farmland of West Aberdeenshire, the surrounding land still productive in farming terms, whilst the farmhouse and steading are no longer directly associated with farming......and yet, a refurbished and converted farmhouse and steading find a new role in an ever changing landscape. We may bemoan the passing of an age of traditional agriculture and traditional uses for agricultural buildings, and yet the modern day trend for their conversion, if carried out sympathetically, can preserve and conserve their structure and setting. This is a set of photographs taken by the editor and those who have had a particular interest in this farmstead and illustrate these changes.
