BBC Collaboration

We’ve got some exciting news about an upcoming collaboration with BBC Scotland which will see some of our previous work reimagined along with new footage shot specifically for the series. The videos will feature some unreleased footage of some of our favourite explores in addition to a look into a few places rarely captured since their closure. The 10 week series will launch on Wednesday 10th May on ‘BBC Scotland‘ and their various social media platforms. Make sure to check […]

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 […]

Abandoned House of Lathallan

The abandoned house of Lathallan is a B-listed baronial country house near Polmont in Falkirk which was built in 1826. It was also known in some places as Lawrence Park. It was designed by the renowned architect Thomas Hamilton with much of the detailing being lost due to vandalism and it’s general deterioration leaving it close to an empty shell. There was a major fire in 2006 that some say was due to a squatter that had been living inside. […]

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 […]

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 […]

Taking Your First Steps

On a fairly mild day in February 2011 a group of friends ventured out to see for themselves a few unique locations in Scotland which were not quite your average tourist sites. Packed with basic camera equipment, wellies and what is now a long running private joke, the legendary green trousers they set off to find a few places which not too many people ever venture to. Places that have long been forgotten by society as a whole. Places that […]

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 […]
