Visited with Lula ta Hula =]

Tarlair Open Air Swimming Pool opened in the 1930's, built in Art Deco style though modified over the years. Latterly it was operated by the Banff and Buchan District Council and closed in 1996.
It is one of Scotland's three surviving outdoor seaside swimming pools.

The large swimming pool plus paddling pool, boating pool and tea pavilion were the very latest in seaside leisure when they were built.
Architect John C Miller, who was the burgh surveyor for Macduff, designed the swimming pool's outer wall to be fractionally below high tide level.
Waves rolled in over the edge, giving swimmers the pleasures of the sea in a controlled environment. It also meant the pool was refilled with clean water twice a day.

I have visited this place a few times, but first time actually getting into the white building. Completley trashed and fire damaged inside but we got to see the original changing rooms. Also discovered parts of a model oil rig with a helipad which was once in the middle of the large pool :D
