    Nicely done. When I first moved to Aberdeen in the late 1970s that's where I spent most of my days at the pool. It's just how I remembered it. Pity about the grafitti though.

    Bon Accord Baths Bon Accord Baths was constructed to provide a centrally located public baths in Aberdeen, as previously the public bathed at baths overlooking Aberdeen beach.

    Very nice shots,and makes me realise how much I didn't see. Was it hard moving around? When I went there a few years ago, it was a nightmare with everything boarded up well, and they even nailed up the doors inside, between rooms.

    From what I understand, the "process" of closing it and turning it into the logistics hub has taken far longer than anticipated, as a result, there has been the odd event here and there. Drifting takes place outside the venue in an old car park section I believe, They've been told a few times to expect an eviction but it hasn't happened yet.

    I went watched the Indycar race they held here, trouble was it kept spitting so they had to keep putting out yellows so they could dry the track. It was a bit of a let down, shame. Didn't realise it had closed

    Brigstock Camp built 1925 and over the years was used for an Emigration Camp, an Army Camp, ATS and Land Army Camp, US Army Training School, and in 1960 Stewarts & Lloyds Steelworks purchased Brigstock Camp for £23,000 at an auction. One hundred people moved from Scotland to work at the Steelworks and used Brigstock Camp for their living quarters and paid between £2.00 to £4.00 a week in rent and were allowed to stay up to nine months to allow them to find suitable accommodation. Done with a...

    Not bad that, so that last pic is a cider press? There was one in a barn near where I stayed in Wales last year, didnt know what it was for but was identical to that!

    Just had a look at my shots (from 2015) - no sign of any timber-related stuff, so I guess that's more recent?

    Nice one, still lots to see although it looks like some of the kit has been removed in the past year or two. The area in your first shot was packed tightly before.

    Exploring out to sea, sort of, a first for myself and with only a weeks planning the best tide times to head out to Grain Tower Battery myself and CapturePhotography found ourselfs at the battery. Despite the excitement, my hatred for ladders still appears to be a thing, quoting Jeremy Clarkson’s “many poos have come out” while climbing the sketchy ladder. The explore itself was great, and in some cases quite unusual with the mount of general public also walking out to the battery and...

    Ty-Bach Farm, November 2019 Missed uploading this one at the time. An old farmstead in a beautiful location, it's been abandoned for a considerable period I'd say. 1. 2.

    Bramble Mill, May 2020 Another social distance explore from me! There's been a mill (I think corn) here for a long time according to old maps, but this is just the remnant of a larger complex that has been demolished. As it was the only bit left I was hoping for machinery galore, alas I was torn to shreds by brambles for not much at all and a complete death trap... 1. 2.

    Cider Press Hall, May 2020 One that's local (so passes social distancing tests!) and one I've been saving for a while. The farmer rumbled me before I could get more shots of the press, so I had to beat a hasty retreat. Not much in the way of history I'm afraid, but it's been abandoned for some time pre-2000s for sure and would have been a lovely house in its day. 1. 2. No way in the front door...
