Another from my trip to Scotland in June of 2015.

I'd seen this reported on in the past and thought "I've never explored an abattoir and would rather like to. So this place was high on my list of targets north of the Border.

The plant used to process around 500,000 lambs a year - around a third of Scotland's total.

Originally due to be closed down on 10th April 2000 it got a stay of execution before finally closing in May of 2005.

As often the site has suffered arson damage.

On with the images.

Now that's something a little bit different. That is a great report I think

Is that a pneumatic bolt gun in pic one, interesting report and pics, Thanks

Yes.

Unfortunately no matter how good these photos are - they are very good, no photographs of empty slaughter houses convey the sights and sounds of one in full production. Coming from farming stock, it is something I have always pushed to the back of my mind, although we both do not eat meat now, but not for that reason - we both prefer fish!

The kick marks on the walls give a bit of a clue... Not pleasant. I have reared my own pigs and sheep and been through the slaughter process with them, I am vegetarian now!

Thanks DS, I was fairly sure it was but I haven't seen the pneumatic variety before, I totally agree with you, if you haven't bin in an abattoir when it's in full production you'll need a bloody imagination to picture it,

glad you got to see it mate, it was spotless at one point back in 2007/8 when we first visited the place. Line PC still booted up fresh Yogurts in the staff fridge ;) the place was complete and inteact sure i put a report up here but it got lost in the site attack.

This was for the sheep. cattle had a band type saw that still powered up when picked up

about 4 years ago the site went offline for quite some time i think may have been a admin thing just remember that it was offline perhaps something to do with Code i thought it was a site attack!
