    This was second choice after a fail at another Aberdeenshire paper mill - Gorecki's report got me interested in this place, though, and it's definitely worth a visit.

    Mugiemoss closed in 2005, with the loss of 250 jobs - the mill was outdated by more modern mills. The site is now used by a trucking firm, so there are trailers all over the place and some buildings are still in use - the lights are still on in a lot of it as well.

    First, into the giant hall for Machine 5:

    At the other end of this giant 250m-long hall:

    Down to the ground floor of hall 5:

    Onto the east power plant - the old one, and you can see the oldest parts of the mill here:

    Back again to the ground floor of hall 5:

    Then onto the newer west power plant - this oil-fired boiler dates from 1970:

    On the wall of this power plant, a poster of, I think, hall 4:
