Portavadie The Lost Village of Scotland [05:24]
Portavadie is situated in Argyll on the west coast of Scotland, the village was built for the oil rig construction workers. It now lies derelict and was never used following the decline of heavy engineering in the seventies. The local residents want it knocked down as it has become a blight on the landscape. However it has become an attraction for graffiti artists and photographers alike. With this audio video I have tried to capture some of the atmosphere of this sureal environment.

Pophail: Scotland's ghost town [09:14]
In October 2009, a group of six graffiti artists were granted permission to paint on walls within the derelict accommodation buildings of Polphail, prior to its imminent demolition. We visited this year and, I have to say it has an atmosphere all of its own.
