Hi Everyone,

This is my first report on here, my first real exploration and my photos which are all taken with my iphone 4s so go easy on me.

I know this is a few months late, but there we go.

Whilst staying in Glasgow, en route to do some walking in the highlands a friend said he'd come across a few tunnels he'd like to explore. The first we came across had been thoroughly locked and sealed since his original recky a few weeks previously, the second we avoided due to the number of people outside whilst the third, leading to the Botanic Garden station was an option. After [removed]


The railway line and station were originally opened in 1896 by the Glasgow Central Railway; the line was open until 1964 whilst the station itself was close in 1939. The station building was used as a shop, tearoom and nightclub until it was destroyed by a fire in 1970 and never rebuilt, however the platforms and lower stairs remain, and that was what we explored.

Found a conveniently placed ladder from a previous explorer or graffiti artist, we left it in the tunnel of course.

And that's it,

My first report. Once again, apologies for the poor picture quality...
