    Report - Murray Royal Hospital, Perth - June 2021

    First opening its doors in 1828, the James Murray Lunatic Asylum is an astounding building. Over the decades, the asylum was expanded as it succeeded as an establishment. In 1948 it became part of the NHS, however by the 80s, such a large building was no longer needed and it slowly went into...

    Fantastic wee hospital! The place was built in 1922 and at the outbreak of WW2 assisted the RAF base nearby.

    Glasgow District Court Hall - Nov 2020

    Had a look and nobody seems to have posted? I do enjoy explores with some kind of niche purpose as they differential themselves from the norm a bit more.. The site is multistoried including a basement sub level, court hall and jail cells. I would say around 1/4 of the building is too dangerous...

    Finance House, Edinburgh, UK. August 2020

    The explore: This is a really exciting hidden gem, as there aren't a lot of reports about it. Surprisingly though, it was very easy to access and there was a lot to explore. We spent a good few hours here. We went back in a few days after our visit, and found the place in total mess, with a lot...

    Report - The Mains, Highlands Scotland - April 2020

    A time capsule cottage sitting away from civilisation. As usual it's always difficult to find any information from any of these properties. Everything inside the property is very dated. There is not even electricity to the cottage itself, it's all gas operated from the lights to the irons. There...

    Report - Abandoned military accommodation, Hoy, Orkney Islands - September 2018

    Hi all, New here, so this is a retrospective from a few years ago, doubt it has changed too much since then though! The island of Hoy has a large amount of disused buildings stemming from the bases and ships stationed here during WW2 and the early post-war period, which have since been...

    Report - Lloyds Bank offices, Edinburgh - February 2020

    The explore This was a fun one for sure. After doing a bit of research on sites in Edinburgh I set off, this being the only one I could get into. I was surprised by the fact nobody had explored it before considering it was a pretty big one and had been lying empty for a while. It was an...
