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 […]

Neidpath Train Tunnel – Guest Article

Part of what makes exploring abandoned railway tunnels so interesting is that although each experience has similar elements, no two adventures are the same. It could be said that the Neidpath Tunnel, which lies to the west of Peebles is perhaps lacking in the wealth of features you’d find in a tunnel like Union Street in Greenock or the interesting stories with regards to it’s construction such as Sandsend Tunnel on the Yorkshire coast but if you venture underneath the […]

Glenfarg Railway Tunnels – Guest Article

2009 was the first year I found myself with genuine free time. A mixture of university and working weekend shifts had occupied all my time prior and because of that, I found it hard to find time to pursue any personal interests. My flatmate at the time said something to me one day in early 2009 which has stuck by me ever since “you have a day off, you can do whatever you want and go where-ever you want”. As […]

Seabank Tank Farm – Guest Article – Abandoned Scotland

Seabank Tank Farm, was personally for me, one of the most interesting sites I have ever had the luck to explore. It was built shortly after World War One as part of the Naval Depot that the town of Invergordon had become. The site was used extensively during the Second World War but was only once targeted by a lone Junkers 88. The tank farm was mainly used for storing oil but some were used for storing drinking water. It […]

Abandoned Hermiston House since 1980’s – Guest Video

One of our friends TeEnZie on YouTube is also a Scottish explorer and has visited many abandoned places. Her videos have a distinct horror feel and is more from a point of view angle as she walks through various places. I really enjoy her videos and I thought this video of the abandoned Hermiston house was particularly interesting, it even had an old Rolls Royce in the garage!

From Childhood Curiosity to Appreciation of the Past – The Thrill of Urbex

Here we have a guest article written by Imogen Reed. From Childhood Curiosity to Appreciation of the Past – The Thrill of Urbex Urban exploration is a relatively new term, commandeered by the curious and brave alike; those whom just have to know what lies behind that decrepit wall or door. However, the spirit of urban exploration is certainly not a new phenomenon. A Child-like Curiosity From our childhood memories, many will remember the local abandoned house, hospital or school […]

Abandoned Places in Portugal – Guest Article

Here’s a guest article from one of our friends Ricardo on YouTube. He has started to document the various abandoned places in Portugal. His videos are really great and the places look incredible.   When I was young (15yo) me and my friends used to go to an old abandoned factory, until we got caught by the police … Since then, when i pass by something abandoned i just want to explore it. Randomly I discovered the AbandonedScotland videos, and […]

St Peter’s Seminary – December 2011 – Guest Article

Written by Clare. You can see more of Clare’s photos here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/77535318@N04/ 28th December 2011 marked a birthday treat (!) to St Peter’s seminary. Since reading extensively about St Peter’s and following the various schemes to save it (including a hotel, health spa and private housing), it had become almost infamous in my mind. An excellent lecture the previous month held in the Glasgow Film Theatre (given by Angus Farquar of NVA) spurned me on enough to pester two friends to […]

Roscigno Vecchia – Ghost Town – Guest Article

We have another guest article written by our friends over at Ghost Town from their visit to an amazing abandoned town Roscigno Vecchia in Italy. You can visit the Ghost Town website and like their facebook page if you want to see more. Many Italian ghost towns are in Southern Italy, where a hostile nature and a lacking territory maintenance often cause disastrous rockslides, landslides, floods and earthquakes. One of areas most affected is the Salerno province, where the beautiful […]
