Calton Gaol, Edinburgh

Built between 1815 and 1817 it was Scotland’s largest prison the tower(Governor’s House) above is the only part standing. Different sites list the demolishing on various dates from 1927 to 1938.

Below Regent Bridge, seeing as Trainspotting 2 is out I thought I’d cash in with a shot from where part of the opening scenes of the original were shot.
