Loudoun Castle Theme Park – Sept 2011

Loudoun Castle Theme Park was one of Scotland’s few family orientated attractions with only one other rival (M&Ds) so when it closed in 2010 it left a few people with one less place to take the kids during the summer holidays. A lot of people didn’t find out that the theme park had closed as we found out during our first visit. On a pleasant stroll through the front gates we saw 2 sets of parents with 2 cars packet […]

Aldwych Station London Underground – World

Underground stations have always fascinated me, the station under the Glasgow Botanic Gardens was fantastic but down in London there are some amazing stations that have long since been abandoned. One of the stations that closed is Aldwych station which is now regularly used as a Film and TV location. Below is a video of the station as it stands now. More information on Aldwych can be found here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aldwych_tube_station Click to subscribe to Abandoned Scotland on YouTube

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 […]

Rosslynlee Hospital – October 2011

In October 2011 we paid a visit to Rosslynlee Hospital near Edinburgh, which closed completely in 2010. The main building was erected in 1874 with a number of new ‘wings’ and other buildings added over the years since. (Click for larger image)   The hospital has since been subject to a number of explorers, metal theives and other such people with it beginning to show signs of their visits.

Cults Limestone Mine – February 2012

WARNING MINES SHOULD NOT BE VISITED BY THE INEXPERIENCED WITHOUT APPROPRIATE PLANNING AND SAFETY EQUIPMENT. Last year we visited Cults Limestone & Brick Works near Cupar in Fife where we saw what remained of the buildings used above ground. We certainly didn’t go equipped to venture into the mine itself so we decided on a re-visit at some point. This month saw us return to Cults ready to venture underground into Cults Limestone Mine. The mine has various entrances and […]

Govanhill Baths – September 2011

As part of Glasgow’s Doors Open Day we took the opportunity to visit Govanhill Baths which have been closed for several years. Since the closure of the baths there has been an ongoing campaign to have them reopened and to service the local community once again. (Click for larger image)   For us Govanhill Baths hold quite a few memories as one member of the team learned to swim here whilst another swam for the swimming club once based here, […]

Gray Dunn & Co – January 2012

Our first proper explore of the year saw us visit an old biscuit factory in the south side of Glasgow. Originally owned by Gray Dunn & Co the company was later taken over by Bisland Brothers Bakery and is the home of Blue Ribands and the Caramel Wafer (so we read anyway!). The building is fairly large and if you’re a regular driver of the M8 motorway you’ve probably driven passed it without realising what it was. Each floor has […]

Firs Park Football Stadium- July 2011

Firs Park Football Stadium is the former home of East Stirlingshire F.C. which is slightly surprisingly in Falkirk. The stadium was closed at the end of the 2007/2008 season with the club ground sharing with Stenhousemuir. We visited 3 years on from when it was closed and were surprised that so much had been left behind by the club, and the fact that it was still there. The stadium had an overall capacity of 1800 with only 200 of those […]

Kelvingrove Park Bandstand – January 2012

Due to the inclement weather at the turn of the year we were unable to muster a proper explore for some time so we instead opted for more of a site visit. The Kelvingrove Park Bandstand was built in 1924 by the architect James Miller and was a popular venue due to its picturesque settings on the banks of the River Kelvin. (Click for larger image)   Passed by many a student, dog walker and jogger on a daily basis […]
