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 […]

Seabank Tank Farm – Guest Article – Abandoned Scotland

Seabank Tank Farm, was personally for me, one of the most interesting sites I have ever had the luck to explore. It was built shortly after World War One as part of the Naval Depot that the town of Invergordon had become. The site was used extensively during the Second World War but was only once targeted by a lone Junkers 88. The tank farm was mainly used for storing oil but some were used for storing drinking water. It […]

Buchanan Castle

Buchanan Castle is more of an early Scots baronial house than your typical Scottish castle and was built between 1852 and 1858. The castle briefly saw service as a hospital during World War II, and a hotel prior to that in 1925. The roof of the castle was removed in 1954 to avoid paying tax on the building which inevitably started the destruction of this once beautiful building. Now all that remains of the castle are its walls which are […]

Here is our latest video from visiting Abandoned Inchkeith Island, the lighthouse on the island is still maintained but several of the buildings dating from before WW1 remain abandoned and untouched for years. Inchkeith is an island in the Firth of Forth, Scotland. It is part of the council area of Fife. Inchkeith has had a colourful history as a result of its proximity to Edinburgh and strategic location for use as home for a lighthouse and for military purposes […]

Abandoned ICI Nobel Explosives Works Ardeer Video

We’ve made a couple of trips to ICI Nobel, part of the site is still live with other companies working there and some of it is covered by The Manufacture and Storage of Explosives Regulations (MSER) of 2005 which would mean it is a criminal offence to enter. So with this in mind you have to tread carefully here. Nobel Industries Limited was founded in 1870 by Swedish chemist and industrialist Alfred Nobel for the production of the new explosive […]
