    Visited this evening.. The actual college building is huge, a small part is being used as offices and the rest was left for me to explore :D

    Corridors and corridors of empty rooms which were classrooms back in the day but i found the odd surprise..

    Blairs College was, until its closure in 1986, Scotland's junior seminary for boys and young men studying for the Roman Catholic priesthood. A bit of history from the website...

    "Although life at Blairs was necessarily disciplined, old college magazines bear tribute to a group of young men enjoying their way of life, with a dedicated and paternal staff and a host of clubs and societies; encouraging them to build and develop the very special community spirit that enveloped the college through the ages. The college was finally closed in 1986, though the building, chapel and estate still remain."

    The accommodation consisted of dozens and dozens of partitions with curtains as you can see in picture below, the space was tiny, would fit a single bed and nothing more..
