    The Waterwheel Inn is/was a hotel and restaurant in the Bieldside area of Aberdeen. The original building dates back to 1600's where it was used as a watermill. More recently it was a hotel with approx 20 rooms and a few bar and restaurant areas.

    The building closed as a part of the Aberdeen bypass plans and had planning permission for a several homes to be built in the area but plans have been deferred due to oppositions to the plans.

    Earlier this year I drove past and saw several caravans in the carpark so it wasn't a surprise to find the inside mostly trashed and several large holes punched through the walls.

    The place is very insecure so I expect it only to get worse over time.

    I bumped into another explorer whilst there but never exchanged names, but seemed friendly enough.
