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 […]

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 […]

Barnton Quarry ROTOR Bunker

This article will periodically be updated to show the hard work being undertaken by the restoration team so its worth bookmarking and checking every so often. For years we have known about the secret bunker hidden under Corstorphine Hill which has been used and abused since it was decommissioned. A year or two ago we heard that an ambitious group had bought the site and were planning to restore it to exactly as it would have been when it was […]

Royal Alexandra Infirmary

Our first explore of 2014 saw us visit Paisley’s Royal Alexandra Infirmary in Renfrewshire. The Royal Alexandra Infirmary, or as it was more commonly known the RAI, has existed in some shape or form since the 1700s. It originally provided out-patient and pharmacy services and later became a full infirmary around 1850. In 1900 the site of the infirmary was moved and a new building was erected, which is what remains today. Part of the current site was redeveloped into […]

Buchanan Castle

Buchanan Castle is more of an early Scots baronial house than your typical Scottish castle and was built between 1852 and 1858. The castle briefly saw service as a hospital during World War II, and a hotel prior to that in 1925. The roof of the castle was removed in 1954 to avoid paying tax on the building which inevitably started the destruction of this once beautiful building. Now all that remains of the castle are its walls which are […]

Angus Church

This church, which shall remain nameless, closed its doors to its congregation in the early 1980s and has remained empty since. It has passed through various hands of ownership and is currently up for sale. We were amazed by the remarkably good condition the church is still in, that is if you can see past the heaps of pigeon crap all over the place. Oh ……… and the smell.   The church has pretty much been left as it was […]

The Island of Inchkeith

We’ve had our eye on Inchkeith for quite some time and we finally managed to organise a trip out to the island before Winter properly set in. Inchkeith sits in the Firth of Forth between Edinburgh and Pettycur and its believed to have been used by people for several hundred years. Its most recent use was during the World Wars when the island would act as a defence against any ships wishing to sail up the Firth of Forth. Most […]

Cumberland St Train Station

Cumberland Street Train Station serviced the Gorbals area of Glasgow until 1966 when it was closed. It was originally called Eglinton St however had its named change to avoid confusion with another near by station. Many passers-by won’t even take a second glance at the former station as they commute to the city centre from the south side, as I used to do the same until I found out about it. The day we visited we had a few unsuccessful […]

Garthland House & Chapel – August 2012

Garthland House is situated on the outskirts of Lochwinnoch and was originally built in 1796. It was once known as Garpel House and then Barr House before becoming Garthland House. It was once a majestic house however no lies in a state of ruin and decay. Its most recent use was that of a care home with little remaining to show of it.

Edingham Munitions Factory – April 2012

Edingham Munitions Factory is situated near the town of Dalbeattie in Dumfries and Galloway. It was built in 1939 to a cost of £3.5 million with most of the factory being built by hand. It was built at this location as the Dumfries to Stranraer railway line passed right through it. (Click for larger image)   The site is made up of numerous almost identical buildings with the majority still standing to this day. The site has had many uses […]
