3D Modelling Abandoned Lennox Castle / Hospital

Lennox Castle in Dumbartonshire was originally built as a home for John Lennox Kincaid and was designed by the architect David Hamilton. It was to remain a personal residence until it was requisitioned for use as a military hospital during World War 1. In 1927 the castle was purchased by the Glasgow Corporation, as well as much of the surrounding land with a view to using it as a hospital for the mentally ill. Several buildings around the castle were […]

Exploring the Abandoned Glasgow Central Low Level in 1967

When people mention exploring the abandoned or urban exploration (for want of a better phrase). Most people believe that this is a modern hobby born from the rise of accessible photography. Anyone that has bought a phone in the last 10 years will most likely have a camera attached to the back of it which can transform anyone into an amateur photographer. Up until recently I also believed that it was a modern phenomenon, that was until coming across a […]

Inverclyde Air Raid Shelter

Growing up in Scotland I’ve always been taught about the involvement we had in World War 2, from the ship building on the River Clyde to the thousands of men and women who lost their lives fighting for the country’s freedom and the typical air raid shelter that saved a lot of lives at the same time. Whilst others are not so lucky I greatly appreciate the fact that I have not had to experience anything like it so far […]

Yester Castle

When it comes to ruinous buildings on the Scottish landscape, is there anything more iconic than a castle? Take, for example, Kilchurn Castle. Mist dances around the stone walls whilst mountains strike up, disappearing into thick, grey layers of cloud and the black waters of Loch Awe lap against the shore. Poetic, sort of. I could go on and describe numerous castles in this way but I’d rather not. Sometimes the grandeur of a castle doesn’t come from its location […]

Scotland Street Railway Tunnel

Edinburgh has been good to its former railway infrastructure. All bar three of the many disused railway tunnels that lie within the city and the towns and villages that surround it have been converted into footpaths. Pedestrians and cyclists will be familiar with the short tunnels of Colinton, Trinity and Rodney Street but lying just to the south of Rodney Street Tunnel is something a little more intriguing, the Scotland Street Railway Tunnel.

 At 1007 yards in length, Scotland Street […]

Exploring the abandoned Mannequin Mansion Eastend House

This is actually a video we shot a couple of years ago but never had a chance to edit. Unfortunately from what I’ve heard it has deteriorated a lot since then and is now very dangerous to enter. The real surprise of Eastend House was the several mannequins that were left around the house. Click to subscribe to Abandoned Scotland on YouTube

Exploring the Abandoned House of Dunmore Park

Last week we posted up a video of our aerial exploration of the abandoned mansion Dunmore Park House. We posted up a video before of inside the abandoned house which you may have seen. Some of the amazing work that went into the 19th century building can only really be seen from the air. It was commissioned in 1820 by the 5th Earl of Dunmore. It was occupied as a family house until as recently as 1911 and remained as […]

Exploring an Abandoned Power Station Video

We’ve visited the site of ICI Nobel before but with each visit we never had the time to visit the giant building of the abandoned power station. It dominates much of the skyline here with many of the other buildings much smaller in size surrounding it. ICI Ardeer was commonly known locally as the ‘factory’ or the ‘Dinnamite’. At the time the company generally provided higher quality employment regarding terms and conditions and pension rights than other local firms. The […]

3D Mapping Abandoned House – Cambusnethan Priory

When we were considering buying our new Phantom 3 Professional drone, 3D mapping was one of the main reasons we decided to take the plunge and spend £800 to purchase it. I’ve always been fascinated with new technology and being able to show the old in a new way. 3D mapping allows us to do this by taking multiple photos around an abandoned building, which are geotagged by the Phantom 3 Pro, allowing the photos to be constructed into three dimensional […]

Castlebridge Colliery

After some time away from exploring we decided to get back into the old ways with a few easy explores. One of these was a trip to Castlebridge Colliery in Fife. For those of you who don’t know what a colliery is, its a coal mine and and the buildings and equipment associated with it.

Castlebridge Colliery was part of a larger deep coal mine complex in Fife, which is more commonly known as Longannet. The shaft was sunk at a […]
