What about those fu­tur­is­tic Por­tak­abin- style flats they threw up to the side of the old Gart­ferry Ho­tel?

What on earth are they do­ing amongst the grace­ful and stately homes of Race­course Road?

And don’t even get me started on the har­bour side flats that now ruin the vista from the Auld Brig across the wa­ter to Ar­ran.
