    Default Charlie's House, Scotland June 2019


    It's been a while since I've posted on here... lockdown has allowed me to finally get around to editing stuff in the archive! I'm desperate to get out the door and find some new places, got a trip down south planned later this month so hopefully I'll find something along the way.

    This was a lovely, big house in the middle of nowhere, with only 1 house close-by. What I assumed to be the neighbour actually cut my explore short by wandering around the grounds (think he was keeping the garden tidy) I don't think he knew I was there but I was way too on edge at this point and made a quick exit. Only managed about 30 minutes in the ground floor, which I'm gutted about as the place was huge and absolutely full of stuff in every room, so sorry about the small amount of images!

    Power was also still on, some areas were in remarkably good condition and some rooms were full of mould and falling down ceiling. Last signs of occupation looked to be from late 2017. I christened it Charlie's house because of the picture frames of the Bonnie Prince in pretty much every room!

    This is amazing. I love that old TV. I see the neon light is on for the heater. Maybe the heating is on to keep free from damp?

    Yeah I noticed it too, it wasn't actually switched on though, just had power going to it. Place was super damp.

    That's a nice house. Looks like my former Grandmas' house, same detail. I like the comfy armchair with th throw over it and the slippers, just waiting for someone to come home.
    When the going gets tough - the tough get going.

    Must be plenty to look at outside with all the binoculars.
