I haven't been back to look but I hope security is a bit tighter these days.
The whole story is this.
First I came across a quarry with a 'secret' doorway. I was told later it was an RSG, Regional Seat of Governance, a nuclear fallout shelter for
politicians. You can find it by looking for Edinburgh Zoo on google maps then go north to the A90. Apparently the people of Edinburgh were a little
annoyed about the politicians getting a fallout shelter when all they got was a leaflet telling them to hide in the cupboard under the stairs. Typical
Edinburghians, always whinging about something.
A friend told me the TV programme Ready, Steady, Go! en.wikipedia.org...
! was purely to distract the masses from the
relevant meaning of RSG.
The fence around the RSG was falling apart, I easily crossed it to see aerials sticking out of the ground and other oddities. On leaving the RSG I
walked along the perimeter fence and came to a gate. This haunts me to the present day. A security guard came rushing up to the gate and stared at me
from a few feet away like a mute rottweiler.
I accidentally clicked on that emoticon but I'll leave it there. Further on, looking for a quiet
spot to sit down, I found a circular rock. While sitting on this 'rock' looking at the view I realised it wasn't a rock but a circular concrete plug,
presumably covering an escape hole from the bunker.
I wasn't the happiest of bunnies when I came across the camels fence and I allowed my mood to control my actions.
I crossed the boundary.
Escaping un-spat-upon and un-camel-stomped I lived to tell my tale.
