So, after discovering a thread I convinced my camera club that Loudon would be worth a wee visit. We set off this evening to explore and take some photos.

Remarkably easy to get in, despite the big gate - it was just a matter of walking around the outside of the gate and then up to driveway to the castle.

That's it really - you have complete access to the site. To be honest it appears to be far from abandoned - in fact it is very well looked after. The grass is mown and everything appears to be largely undamaged.

Many of the rides have been taken down and removed but there was still a fair bit to see. Well worth a visit if you are in the area.

Haha - he made a joke about charging us to let us out. He was very nice and when we explained we were a camera club he said "I knew you were otherwise I'd have thrown you out".

Ayr Photographic Society actually organised an official visit there last Thursday - so it can be done legit if you ask. Takes a lot of the fun out of it though!

Not sure mate, The title is spelt wrong on this thread, I had a quick search for "Loudoun" and it came up with some bits. Dunno if its still around but the last report I could find on 28DL was from sep '14. Also read that theres a 2 km tunnel leading underground from it somewhere too :) :) :)
