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 […]

Abandoned Railway Station Cumberland Street Video – May 2011

Over the years and to this day we frequently pass by Cumberland Street Station, only once have we ever seen the boarding peeled back with an entry point and we made sure to capitalise on it. After going to numerous different failed locations it was a stroke of luck to see the entrance to this station. It was developed by the Glasgow and South Western Railway in 1900, as a replacement for Main Street station, Gorbals, following the doubling of […]

Dunmore House – Guest Article

Ray Statter visited Dunmore House and shared his great video on our facebook page. In 1820-22 the 5th Earl of Dunmore commissioned the architect William Wilkins to build Dunmore Park, a magnificent mansion very similar to Dalmeny House completed a few years previously. It was occupied by the family until their departure in 1911 and remained as a private home until 1961. After a short spell as a girls school from then until 1964 it was abandoned. Although substantial parts […]

Cathkin Park football stadium (Home of Third Lanark) Video – May 2011

Another old video we done last year, the park formerly contained a football stadium, which had played host to organised football since 1884. It was originally known as Hampden Park (the second by that name) and was owned by Queen’s Park. When Queen’s Park moved to the third (and current) Hampden Park, they sold the ground to Third Lanark, who renamed it New Cathkin Park. More information can be viewed here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cathkin_Park The park is currently undergoing a push for […]

Kelvingrove Park Bandstand Video – January 2012

Kelvingrove Park bandstand has hosted many bands and groups over the years, sitting next to Glasgow University it is in a prime position for students. The bandstand dates from around 1924 -25 and it was used all the way up until the mid 1990’s. I actually wanted to include a short clip of the bandstand from the 20’s but was quoted a fee that there’s no way I could justify which was a shame as it looked incredible. Fortunately other […]

Firs Park Football Stadium (former home of East Stirlingshire F.C.) Video – July 2011

I’ve got mixed feelings about Firs Park on one hand I could class it as my favourite explore, it was relaxed and the weather was great. On the other hand we’d been to the stadium as a team two years prior and had watched a football match there, so to see it now lying in ruin was very depressing. The stadium is only small with only 200 seats and a capacity of 1,800. Having supported Clydebank, a team in the […]

Arrochar Torpedo Testing Station Video – May 2011

Back in May 2011, we visited the torpedo testing station in Arrochar. The place has had a colourful history, in 1915 a spy Augusto Alfredo Roggen was caught and hanged at the tower of London for taking photographs here. Here is an old map of the site, where sadly several of the buildings have since been demolished: “Test firing was carried out from submarines, from torpedo tubes built beneath the pier of the test facility, or from a modified vessel, […]

Glasgow Necropolis – January 2012

With the poor weather at the turn of the year we had no option but to plan for a visit to somewhere locally. The Glasgow Necropolis was always somewhere that I’d known and heard about but we’d never taken the time to visit, so we decided to pay a little visit there. Some of the architecture was incredible with several of the monuments and graves being very ornate. You can watch the video from our trip below. You can see […]

Dalquharran Castle Video

Out exploring in April 2011, we actually went to visit Loudoun Castle theme park but after walking up to the front entrance we were swiftly turned away by angry security concerned we were going to pinch gardening equipment (despite having nothing but camera equipment in hand). So our backup for the day was Dalquharran castle (old and new). It was actually a really good explore with the sunshine beaming (a rarity in the Scottish climate). We first made our way […]

Inverkip Power Station Exterior Videos

The rumour going around at the moment is that Inverkip power station will start to be demolished over the next couple of weeks, with a company being employed to begin stripping it out. Unfortunately we never managed to get inside within the short time we were there, the control room will always be a big regret if I never get to see it but here is a video of the exterior parts of Inverkip we made. Graemeh also made a […]
