    Default Big House, Scotland, March 2012




    The Big House is one I've been meaning to look at for a while - I had a day off work and the fuel tank in my car was brimmed with cooking oil so it was off quite a long way, in a classified direction.



    Unusual circular main entrance hall, you'd need a ridiculous fisheye lens to capture it all.



    Unopened tins of crap lager from the late 1990s. This place is really abandoned and un-trashed.



    Stained glass window in the main stairwell.



    There's lots of stuff left behind, exploring places like this always feels very intrusive, even if they have been abandoned for more than 10 years.





    Old nautical charts.





    Around the side there's a very rotten Bedford badged Isuzu pickup - last taxed in 1999.





    Many remote areas of Scotland were off the grid until the 1970s (some still are), the burn, backed up by a Lister diesel generator, provided power to the Big House.



    Hydro electric generator.

    Fascinating. Now excuse me, gotta catch my breath a little.
    You mean that in Britain, one can find a perfectly preserved mansion like this, untouched by defilers, with windows intact and stuff? Man, my next vacation is pretty much decided.
    Thanks so much for this.
    Edit: Oh, the cleverness of me. Of course I meant "... in Scotland, one can find..."

    Some people are like Slinkies. They aren't really good for anything, but they still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs.
