    Default Fly Agaric Cottage, Scotland, July 2018


    I've not got around to posting many of my explores this year, this wee cottage being one of my absolute favourites! It was tiny, yet pretty much untouched and full of character, a perfect hidden gem. I'm unsure of when it became abandoned, yet there was no electricity as was apparent from all the gas lamps about the place!

    It was in remarkably good condition so I'm sure it can't have been empty for more than a few years, maybe just an older person who was very set in their ways...

    Not much modernisation taken place in this house. Is that a gas operated iron? The cooker uses bottled gas only. I didn't see any electric meters anywhere. Just a nice but an ben to retire to.
    When the going gets tough - the tough get going.

    Yep, everything was gas operated. At least a couple of gas lamps in each room as well, proper little time warp!
