Had seen this pop up a couple of times from friends so decided to give it a look whilst in Scotland. Done a solo visit on the way home. The building was originally a high school for the city, it closed in 1968 when the school moved to bigger and newer premises. After the move they built a debating chamber for the Scottish parliament. This was before the failed 1979 devolution referendum, this failed to provide a sufficient backing for a devolved assembly. It was later used by the Scottish grand committee. The council bought the building from the Scottish office in 1994. It was proposed that it was used again as a debating chamber for parliament in 1997, but issues were raised over the accessibility and lack of parking and office space, plus it was vunerable to a terrorist attack. Future proposals for the building are to turn it into a hotel.
I hear it has about a million armadillo security bots in and around the place these days.
