abandoned and rescued buildings…

If you walk along the Edinburgh seafront from Portobello towards Cramond, you will come across this…hmmm who thought that was a good idea??? Am a big fan of austere and brutalist architecture, but this does not scream “come inside for scones” to me…open on weekends folks…


…and on the other scale of the spectrum, this rather fabulous building (Victorian am thinking?), an old hotel by Queensferry rd has been saved from destruction whilst all around it is raised to the ground…
