Torpedo Testing Station – Loch Long – May 2011

For an explore in May you’d expect, even in Scotland, that the weather would be fairly pleasant, but as always the weather loves to make our explores that slightly more interesting. The Torpedo Testing Station sits on the northern banks of Loch Long near to Arrochar and has long been left to rot by the military. 100 years old this year the station was closed in the 1980s. The Torpedo Testing Station can easily be missed when driving along the […]

Dalquharran Castle – April 2011

One thing to remember when planning an urbex explore, always have a back up!   Our original intended explore for that day was a no go thanks to some jobsworth of a security guard, so off we went further into Ayrshire in search of Dalquharrah Castle. After ditching the car we walked off through the fields to find the newer Dalquharran Castle (yes there are two of them!) and we weren’t disappointed as it came into view on the brow […]

Dalquharran Castle Video

Out exploring in April 2011, we actually went to visit Loudoun Castle theme park but after walking up to the front entrance we were swiftly turned away by angry security concerned we were going to pinch gardening equipment (despite having nothing but camera equipment in hand). So our backup for the day was Dalquharran castle (old and new). It was actually a really good explore with the sunshine beaming (a rarity in the Scottish climate). We first made our way […]

Pirniehall School – Guest Article

There where four of us set out to find Pirniehall School that day Myself, my partner Alan and a couple of photography buddy’s Norm and Nils, after a few wrong turns and getting a little bit agitated, we set off across the fields… over a fence through mud up to our knees almost and over another fence. Being careful not to be spotted from the house at the front we decided to do a little recce round the buildings first. […]

Lera Quarry & ROC post – Guest Article

I cycled off to glamis from kirriemuir initially to go to the glamis roc post (pics at the end) and while looking at the map I found a building in a disused quarry so decided to check it out, and i was rather surprised with what i found! (panorama of the building and surrounding area.) I casually migrated to the first thing i noticed as I put my bike down, an old television set. interiors: admittedly the junk dumped here […]

East Fortune Hospital – Guest Article

We drove down the road, the trees on the right hand side doing well to hide the buildings behind. Parking the car at the opening to the small group of houses near the hospital, we began to gather our equipment together and set out to find an entrance into the hospital. The buildings were surrounded by a high fence which seemed to be covered in rust and those overly common “Trespassers will be prosecuted” signs. Eventually we found a fence […]

Glenfarg Railway Tunnels – July 2011

For our first photos post we thought we would show off an older trip to Glenfarg Railway Tunnels from last summer which is still one of my favourites, possibly because I have a thing for railways and tunnels! The tunnels are a stones throw from the M90 and are roughly half way between Kinross and Perth near to the town of Glenfarg. The old trackbed is now partially used by the motorway in some parts, with this line being another […]

Inverkip Power Station Exterior Videos

The rumour going around at the moment is that Inverkip power station will start to be demolished over the next couple of weeks, with a company being employed to begin stripping it out. Unfortunately we never managed to get inside within the short time we were there, the control room will always be a big regret if I never get to see it but here is a video of the exterior parts of Inverkip we made. Graemeh also made a […]

Glasgow Botanic Gardens Underground Station Video

We visited the underground station in the Botanic Gardens in Glasgow as one of our first explores, for most of us it was the first time we had been inside an abandoned railway tunnel. I think we all feel this was the best railway tunnel that we’ve been down in Scotland so far and it would take quite a bit to top it.

Our first video St. Peter’s Seminary

Well it was back in March 2011 that we decided to visit St. Peter’s Seminary, since then an arts group called the NVA have made plans to renovate it and have the existing buildings back in use for art exhibitions and education. It will be interesting to see how it turns out with it’s new lease of life. In the meantime here is the video from our visit:
