Like us, if you're struggling for a place to keep your large collection of doves, then you're best off building yourself a dovecot, or doocot as they call them in Scotland.

There are a few formats you can choose and this doocot, sitting nearby to Northfield House in East Lothian, is beehive-shaped. Built in the 16th century it would have had an occupancy of around 600 nestboxes!

Thanks for checking out this place on the Fabulous North! I do enjoy a wander out in to the countryside trying to find hidden gems that not many people know about. You can't beat a rogue Pele tower up a remote hill or a mysterious stone circle or a stunning waterfall secluded in a forest.
