    Default Explosives Factory Scotland august 2019


    Hi there. My brother took be for a look round this large explosives factory near me that covers many square miles. We only covered some of the buildings on the grounds. I hope to return during the week with the dog to take it for a walk round the place. My brother told me not to name the place in order to protect it from vandals. Here are some of the pictures -

    Or just hit return an extra time between photo codes, definitely makes things easier to look at.

    Nice photos though, still a lot to see there!

    Nice set off photos there. It's a place I fancy seeing when I am next up there. It's been doing the rounds a bit. Don't mean to seem like an old woman but not naming won't stop people finding it. It's quite an easy one to find. Once it's in the net it's there to find. But I would never not tell anyone not to name always believe in individual choice
    I like to go where others fear to tread.

    No, this is the one near Erskine. Thanks for the comments, I hope to return this week to see some more of the site. I'll post some more pictures up in a few days.

    Cheers, I've been to the former but I only found remains of few bunkers and a couple of warehouses, I was worried I missed something there.

    Nice report!

    Good stuff, looks like there's still a fair bit to see. Have its former owners given up on fixing the fence?

    From what I hear, the former owners have given up full stop. Excellent stuff, I've not seen anything from here in a long time. Thought it had long been cleared.
