    My 2nd report so I'll put it in the new members bit still.

    There isn't much left of this place, I don't even remember it being there when it was open, despite living in Inverness most of my life. Parts of the site closest to the road obviously had been used to dump rubbish, there's a big wooden fence all round now. It was a frozen day so seemed appropriate.

    Brief history:
    This place offered christmas 365 days of the year and you could meet santa all the time. Apparently it was quite popular in the early 1990's but then in the late 90's everyone stopped going(probably realising it was crap). It was a "theme park"(for kids) with a small dino train, duck pond, indoor carts on tracks, crazy golf, a frozen lump of ice - "the north pole". There are only two buildings left - one which contained the christmas tree is fully boarded up but the other is accesible. I didn't know what to expect so I wasn't disappointed.
