St. David’s Well, Weem, Aberfeldy, Perthshire

Whilst we were in Weem in Scotland it would have been rude not to pay a visit to St. David’s Well. So we set off early Sunday morning past the Aberfeldy Weem Hotel, around the side of the Church Of Scotland and up a steep incline.

We met a farmer coming down so we asked him the directions to the Well; after a brief conversation, he said it was around 50 yards up and around the top of the steep embankment.

Lord Line Trawlers

The Lord Line building probably is, where most urban explorers come to cut their teeth, no security and a vast amount of space to explore gives anyone interested in exploring a huge free uninterrupted explore; several buildings on this dockyard lay abandoned.
