    Default Alex's house..Scotland


    My mate found this house by chance whilst twitching in Scotland.me and there girlfriend for a break in a hotel not a huge distance from it.so we went there and then on from there to do some sight seeing.set in a really remote place with nothing near it,the views are stunning.there is actually two houses.one smaller one virtually next to it.i would put time of abandonment around the early eighties.both are in a bit of a state.i saw a few things I have never seen in a house before.



















    First strange thing was this circular seat with three seats going around it



































    Another strange thing.a home made extension lead.cobstructed from a cable reel and an old spare wheel.











    The second house











    Never seen skis in a derp before,let alone wooden new.



    For all your midge and pest problems



    I like to go where others fear to tread.

    Wow. Plenty of stuff left there. Good find Mikey and well photographed. Love the Red Squill rat poison bottle. Apparently it's made from an onion-like plant found in the Mediterranean.

    Nicely done. The two seats together is called a "Love Seat" where a couple can seat and ogle at one another. The home-made extension reel is a good idea as I've made a similar one. The furniture is nice.
    When the going gets tough - the tough get going.

    I know I was shocked when you sent me the pin after I posted it on fb.just crazy you went past it by chance all that time ago.and still there untouched.which proves it's isolation.

    The two seats together was three seats which actually make you face away from each other.maybe it's a seat for a couple who have had an argument ha ha

    An oddity - this one was actually made for hotel lounge furnishings (the image is very similar to ones appearing in mid 60's hotel furnishing catalogues). However, in its early Victorian incarnation it was known as a 'chaperone' seat. The seat facing the room corner was actually smaller in dimensions and the chaperone perched, rather than sat on the seat cushion, whilst the 'lovebirds' canoodled - safely separated by the substantial arm!
