Secret Scotland

If it's secret, and in Scotland…

The Scostman chose the WRONG SHOP to use as a ‘Long-term empty unit’

There are some ironically funny coincidences to be found out there.

All the more ironic as this one relied on my utterly useless memory in order to be spotted.

The Scotsman just ran a photo Gallery with nine pics giving various examples of…

Scotland’s high streets in crisis: 9 pictures showing the decline of town centres

One of the pics was very familiar, and the credit shows they got it from Johnstone Press (they’re sort of local).

This is West Princes Street in Rothesay, a place I have not actually seen, or been in for many (as in lots) of years, but has changed so little it’s still easy to recognise from the last time I was there.

While I’d have recognised this anyway, I had another reason for recognising it now.

The shop they featured as ‘Long-term empty’… is not longer (empty).

As of seeing one of Zak’s fine pics from 08 January 2019, I know this shop was being refitted on that date.

Fingers crossed he’s watching it, and we’ll get to see what became of it later.

I’m afraid I’m the one saying “There goes another lit bit of history”, not “Oh goody, another shop”.
