I tried for almost 7 months to see this little Theatre in Aberdeenshire, on probably the 10th visit here, the door was open. The Theatre is part of Blairs College / Seminary and has sat unused since the late 80's and surprisingly there is quite a lot of items left inside. Luckily the theatre has been fairly well sealed, protecting it from the elements, however on this visit it was mighty cold inside! From the outside the building does not look very promising, but the treasure lies within! For being such a small theatre there is a real sense of drama inside. The architecture inside is not of a grandeur style, a simplistic style with the red cloth seats and domed ceiling give it a excellent setting to explore! It was re-modelled in 1827 by John Gall, under the supervision of Rev Gordon and John Menzies. John Menzies was a very wealthy Catholic Laird who gifted the land for the college construction. The Older Seminary is situated behind the very impressive new college which is partly used as a museum. Thanks for looking
A wee solo adventure in the Aberdeenshire Countryside and stumbled across this we Derpy Yokel Teuchter Pub. Couldnt resist having a wee nosey inside. Not much to see but I liked it. Did find a lil ole vets store, but got busted and thrown out by the owner when i was taking pics of Lambs Eyeball Clips - a more sneaky revisit will be made for that one This pub closed sometime in the early 90's pretty much guessing as the BT telecom page still had the numbers prior to BT adding the 01 to the area codes! I've stumbled across many of these doorways in my time, heading for the lounge as your more likely to be served in there, bit posher ye know! 1. Inside the lounge bar head to the fire place and try to keep a low profile 2. Take this chance to warm yer hands n toes up before being caught and thrown outside! 3. It times to brave the bar person and get yersel a pint of Black n Tan (makes you grow hairs on your forehead); Always good to speak to the bar person about the lovely decor to distract them about your youthful looks! 4. After having a few more pints and the hairs start to grow on your forehead, its time to brave the Public Bar R U 18 ??????? 5. Once inside its best to head for a corner once again and try to establish a base like you've been there all night long! 6. Head to the bar and get a Pint o Heavy n a whiskey chaser 7. Thats when the antics start, and your mis-behaviour in the pub leads you to saluting the friendly sheep outside! 8. The lights are flicked on and off signalling its time to get the last round in! 9. Another quick Pint of good ole Tennants and Long Vodka for the lady (sheep) your trying to take home (or round the back of the pub) 10. Another quick hit of the Single Malt, and then..... 11. It all goes wrong and a trip to the bog to spew up the booze.... 12. Time for home, probably without said lady you drunken sod 13. Thanks for looking!
