    Default Hoarders church..Scotland


    I have been meaning to visit here now for ages,but never got around to it,there was always something else to see.i knew it was a church full of stuff all over the floor.so on arecent trip to Scotland I decided to give it a look on the way home.i am glad I did now as I loved the place but its such a strange place.filled with all sorts of stuff but it was the old dolls everywhere that did it for me.its a 35mm prime lens heaven.i could have spent hours in here.the place has a real surreal and strange feel to it.i know brewtal had benn here the day before and he will echo what I say about the place,especially when he got there in the dark.the girlfriend who has been before was telling me that it was used for residential use hence the beds.and they liked bric and brac,sadly the building is in a bad state,the wall are slowly giving and without any work on it wont survive too many more harsh Scottish winters.



















































































    I like to go where others fear to tread.

    Lots of creepy dolls. There's enough stuff to hold a jumble sale. Maybe that was the original plan for this place.
    When the going gets tough - the tough get going.

    Thats a pretty special place even if slightly freaky!
    Amazingly untouched, but I assume its pretty remote? Nice images as always!

    Just a redundant Kirk/Chapel that became the residence of a family of collectors - the hobby then turned into an obsession obviously. One tends to fill the available space in situations like that, and this place is big.

    Thank you all.i guess they moved out due to the building because of the unstable nature of the building.the far end the wall is collapsing which has caused a whole window to fall out.they were certainly collectors as ds says it is a big space to fill.and they certainly done that

    Once again Mikey a very nice set of images. I like this one as these places always make me sit back and think about what went wrong!

    I have always found it somewhat amusing when people get on their high horses and slag off modern buildings and techniques, whilst praising the old. Dig into the foundations or remove the plaster work and panelling of many medieval properties and the work of the 'cowboy' or 'inexperienced' will be revealed. There was no scientific evidence used in the digging of foundations and there are plenty of examples of 'extra buttressing' added during, or just after building finished - because structural movement was detected. This place is a prime example of a great mass of masonry sitting on inadequate foundations - Left to function as a chapel/kirk it would probably stood until demolished, unfortunately the building works during the conversion probably started the subsequent 'collapse'. Often purchased very cheaply because of constraints placed on their subsequent use, proper conversion can be expensive. All the ones (4) I have seen in this state over the years were of the 'we'll move in and do a DIY conversion as cash becomes available' variety. Sadly it appeared that the ever increasing demands for cash to move the projects on cause the couples to split. So people; just stick to exploring these places and leave the rebuilding to others!
