    Default Old cottage, Salmond's Muir, Scotland, June '08


    This is part 1 of a trilogy of places I visited on the same day.
    First up was this burnt ruin of a cottage just of the Dundee to Arbroath dual carriageway.
































    Love'n'Peace.

    'Tis the cleanest fireplace I think I've seen. This site may be up for development as a skip out the back had tons of crap in it and some of the floors and walls were very clean considering all the damage elsewhere.

    In the future will the post apocalyptic urbexers be going about saying 'oh nice storage heater':)
    I love fireplaces, and images of the family sitting around them, before TeeVees we all used to sit around fires, the central essential, and talk.

    I once lived in a flat with humuuuuungous rooms and big marble fireplaces. It was wonderful late at night sitting by the fire and reading. Very haunted though...mucho poltergeist activity and some really frightening things happened there.
