This was an odd one.
normally i'm quite layed back in what i do in terms of urban exploration.
but, never in a blind panic i have had to scale a wall;
and hide from neds, and potentially police.

was a bloody good laugh though :coffee

From what i have heard from locals, the Hooks was not a very desirable hotel to stay at, drugs were dealt in the rooms and fights took place in the bars, dogs were aloud so, i suppose it can't have been too bad.
it was listed at one point, but to the best of my knowledge it had been revoked for some reason or another.

The name "Hooks" was given to the hotel as Kirriemuir was the birthplace of the famous author, J.M Barrie, the author of Peter Pan.
(also born here was Bon Scott, AC/DC's lead singer which is cool )

The bottom floor was completely ruined, so I'll only post one picture from there:

Looks trashed and very grimey.
