Right folks! As you can tell, my main explores are based mainly in Aberdeenshire. This one might not be as impressive as my Westwood manor find, but it's quite an important one for me, being my first proper boarded up place sort of explore when I was about 10. Before then, it had been old farmhouses (still my favourite) that we passed when hillwalking.

Anyways, this Orphanage opened in 1891 and since has been home to many children including Jessie Kesson, a famous North East author and has had visits from Princess Margaret in it's later years.

Basically.... closed about 11 years a go now = explore!!

The home coming in to view . . .

Don't let the excitement of this one overwhelm you too much...

And the stairs to the loft.

Like most places - the orphanage becomes accessible only from time to time, and by chance, I found this to be the case yesterday. I had my camera but nothing else. No torches or anything, so these photos are the result of clicking aimlessly in total darkness. Hence why they're not brilliant.

Unfortunately, quite a bit more vandalism since my last visit.

Looking up the staircase (notice the roof window - I found a hatch in the attic which can be opened. After crawling through I realised you can get in to the space between the window and the roof - like in the photo after!)

You can look down on to the staircase. Only thing is though - who else could look down on the staircase when you're there?! :eek: ...

The attic - everything from board games, clothes, lamps, photos and furniture to be found here...
