Re: Hidden Cumbernauld.

A few pics from the penthouses. The final photo is what you see just through the front door, don't know if they would've been split into two or three apartments, small rooms certainly. Bit of a letdown to be honest. now if they'd only open up the cdc club, hopefully that'd be more of a time capsule...

Re: Hidden Cumbernauld.

Pretty sure thats the Glencryan mine. Great stuff. It's definitely the Glencryan Mine. There's a cracking set of pictures by a guy called Dave Walsh on flickr and they tie in with some of the footage in the video. The comments on some of the pictures are a mine of information too.
