Secret Scotland

If it's secret, and in Scotland…

The petrol station has lost its fence

Looks this is another story that’s going to drag on for a while: The petrol station is now officially for sale

I’m not really sure why they bothered erecting a security fence and signs around this particular petrol station was abandoned, since all the hardware and buildings were boarded up. I tend to think anyone that was going to breach those measures would not be deterred by a temporary fence and some signs that suggest a security van might drive by every once in a while.

So, I wasn’t particularly surprised to see the fence and signs go, as whoever is looking after the site decided to save the recurring hire charges – and installed a few barrier posts across the petrol station’s entry/exit gaps in the wall. Probably more useful, as I’ve seen a few abandoned and derelict forecourts taken over by operators who are clearly not paying for the space, and soon disappear, presumably once the legitimate site owner gets to hear about them, and evicts them.

Here’s how it looks now, when I passed recently:

Unfenced but closed off

As was:
