At one point in time, the Scottish called themselves the Athens of the North so they attempted to be like the Greeks and make their own Parthenon. They ran out of money to finish it though and when questioned by outsiders, they claimed that this is how it was supposed to be. The next failed building was an observatory for astronomy students.

      ... and a huge bus load of Russian tourists (*cough* spies *cough*) has arrived earlier in the evening and remarkably were still occupying both elevators. We managed to get past them and push in so we could go to bed. Funnily enough when we checked out the next morning at 7am there was another long line of Russian's waiting in reception for breakfast.
