AR Drone 2.0 – A New Perspective for Abandoned Scotland

We recently got a package from the kind folk over at Parrot containing an AR Drone 2.0. I’ve always thought it would be great to capture aerial views over abandoned places but the technology was always lacking with it quickly becoming very expensive and run into thousands of pounds to get a capable drone and also an HD camera that could be attached to it. I then came across the AR Drone 2.0 and it looked like it had everything […]

Hartwood Hospital – September 2011

Do you believe in Ghosts?

The short answer to the question would be no I don’t believe in ghosts and I’ll try and explain why. We’ve visited several different places, some of them would be considered spooky and some people would […]

The End for Polphail Village?

Is it the end for Polphail Village? With it being recently reported on the BBC that the popular abandoned site is now up for sale the answer to the question still remains to be answered. Any prospective buyer of the location, you would expect, will be looking at it as a potential investment with it’s close proximity to the Portavadie Marina, a popular attraction for yachting enthusiasts.

Abandoned Merchiston Hospital May 2012 – Video

Here’s our latest video of the abandoned Merchiston hospital.

In 1946, Broadfield was sold to the Port Glasgow Town Council, who cleared the site. Paisley Burgh bought Merchiston House as a replacement […]
