Church Hall, Rayne, Aberdeenshire

I don't know why I like this church hall so much. The picture shows a squat grey block in a grey landscape. But there's something that makes me want to walk through that little white door.
Rayne Church Hall is being sold by the Church of Scotland, with a new deadline for offers of midday on September 27th.
The detached stone-built, slate-roofed building was built around 1893, in rural Kirkton of Rayne, about 25 miles from Aberdeen. There are rail links between Aberdeen and Insch (six miles away) and Inverurie (eight miles).
The building is basically a large main hall (roughly 7m by 14m) and two smaller halls, plus odd and ends. It's not clear what land comes with it; the hall is adjacent to Rayne church and there are shared bits - there's more information on the pdf here. There's no planning or change of use permission yet, so you'd need to chat with the Aberdeenshire Planning chaps and chapesses.
It's on the market at offers over £90k. Details here. More on buying Scottish churches here.
