    Default A Scottish School, Scotland May '09


    The 'A scottish school' for Scottish children was built somewhere in Scotland between 1700 and 2009 and once taught a variety of subjects. The building itself has been vandalised a fair bit on the outside and in the grounds, inside hasn't suffered too bad but has been smashed up at some point. Stripped out in places but still enough left behind to make it interesting.

    Visited with Kate, Lost, Jaff Fox, Havoc.

    Not the last site we visited, but the last one ive got round to reporting from this trip! Over and out

    I hope you followed the one way system.

    I'm surprised how little I remember of it. The only bits I positively recognise are the lab in picture 4 and the gym. I have much clearer memories of the exterior and the huts.

    'A Scottish school' not too far from 'A Scottish Asylum'
    The title cracked me up but you forgot to mention the 'Millions of PRS's' we avoided!

    Great pictures san!

    Lovely building there...some nice architectural details too. Dig those funky flower tiles!
    You certainly had a busy road trip, Mr B & co. Some very nice visits.

    There were several vans in the playground today and there's a For Sale sign on it now.

    That's a shame, I'm pretty sure I know which school this is. First time I've ever been able to work out the cryptic ones.
