Abandoned Scotland



I was introduced to a series of videos which record areas of Scotland which have been left to rot.  Most of the series seems to have been filmed in the west but they're intriguing viewing.

This video focuses upon the old Botanic Gardens railway station in Kelvinside. I can nearly hear the crowds and chatter as people arrive for a day out at one of Glasgow's prime attractions.  It was closed permanently to passengers on 6 February 1939 with the line being closed on 5 October 1964.

No I didn't Woodsy. Jings, that'll give someone grand ideas. :)

(Loved the way the access wall was built).

One of my very favourite sites is Disused Railway Stations. It has given me many happy hours. It has a full listing for the old Waverley Line amongst others.
