This is 1 of 2 images, with title Freeport in this square
A derelict shopping mall miles from main roads or towns. Looks mothballed, the Versace shop is quite surreal in this location, amongst the bogs and bings of the old oilshale fields. Did the builders stick a pin in a map between Glasgow and Edinburgh and hope? Will I get The Knock On The Door for venturing past the security cameras and goml signs?

I was not bothered here, but over the years have had several visits from the Police, usually for being rather shady and taking photographs of beautiful scenery. There are some real idiots out there. At least it would be understandable here.
Meanwhile the site is very secure now, but still looks much the same.
