Roscigno Vecchia – Ghost Town – Guest Article

We have another guest article written by our friends over at Ghost Town from their visit to an amazing abandoned town Roscigno Vecchia in Italy. You can visit the Ghost Town website and like their facebook page if you want to see more. Many Italian ghost towns are in Southern Italy, where a hostile nature and a lacking territory maintenance often cause disastrous rockslides, landslides, floods and earthquakes. One of areas most affected is the Salerno province, where the beautiful […]

Cults Lime Works Video – September 2011

So with our recent visit to the limestone mine at Cults, here is the video we made last year of the nearby Cults Lime Works. Unfortunately several of the buildings had been knocked down but there were still some parts which were interesting which can be seen below. Click to subscribe to Abandoned Scotland on YouTube

Top 10 things to remember when going exploring

When going out exploring it’s important to prepare, so we decided to make a list of the top 10 things to remember when going exploring. 10. Local Laws It’s important to remember that all around the world the laws regarding trespass are different, make sure that you are aware of any local laws and try not to breach of them. Also never take any items from places you visit as this will in most cases be the property of the […]

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 […]

Gray Dunn & Co Biscuit Factory Video – January 2012

Travelling down the M8 Motorway it would be hard to miss the Gray Dunn & Co building, frequently we’ve drove past it always wondering what the interior holds. Unfortunately much of the inside was gutted but there were still several small details left relating to the previous occupants. Watch the video below to see our findings: Click to subscribe to Abandoned Scotland on YouTube The pictures from our trip can be seen here: http://www.abandonedscotland.com/blog/gray-dunn-co-january-2011/

Air Raid Shelter Urbex Inverclyde – Guest Article

Urbex Inverclyde e-mailed us with an explore of an Air Raid Shelter, the Shelter itself was built by the Birkmyre family in preperation for WW2 (they owned the nearby gourock ropeworks factory which has now been developed into flats) it was built for the employees and their family memebers and could hold more than 1000 people, on the 2 nights of bombing there was thousands of local people trying to get into the shelters for protection, this caused scenes of […]

Abandoned Hospital Bangour Exterior Video – October 2011

We actually visited the Abandoned Hospital in Bangour the same day as visiting Hartwood Hospital in our previous video but after seeing the actve security guards pass us in a car for the hundredth time we decided to leave and visit elsewhere. It was only after a few weeks that we decided to make it when people wanted to see what we captured from the trip (I was planning to leave it until we visited again…). Bangour Village Hospital was […]

Abandoned Hospital Hartwood Video – September 2011

After going to another location which wasn’t as successful we decided to visit the abandoned hospital in Hartwood. The remains of Hartwood Hospital, an 19th century psychiatric hospital with imposing twin clock towers, are the main feature of the village, even after its closure under the direction of the Lanarkshire Health Board in 1998. 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 […]

Glasgow Botanic Gardens Underground Station – Billy Campbell Video

Why this video hasn’t even got 1000 views is completely beyond me, this is certainly one of the best exploring videos I’ve seen on YouTube. This was done before we visited the botanic gardens back in March last year. I think it captures the station perfectly. Unfortunately it looks like Billy never went to many places exploring (or hasn’t shared many of his videos) but I would definitely like to see some more of his brilliant work. You can see […]

Glenfarg Railway Tunnels Video – July 2011

We love a good railway tunnel, planning to go to Glenfarg after going through the tunnels at the botanic gardens in Glasgow really whet the appetite for more. The Glenfarg railway tunnels were part of the Perth to Kinross line, due to the terrain the North British Railway had to construct two tunnels with 4 miles of each other. The line was closed on the 15th June 1964 as part of the Beeching cuts. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Glenfarg You can see the video […]
