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.

St Peter’s Seminary before the ruin

We’ve visited St Peter’s Seminary twice over the last year, it really is such a unique building with an incredible architecture.

Abandoned Hospital Hartwood Video – September 2011

Like many other Victorian institutions in the area such as Gartloch Hospital, Stonyetts, Lennox Castle and Kirklands, the inception of the Community Care Act (1990) gave […]
