On the top floor of an unexciting-looking 1980s office building in a part of the city rarely visited by tourists, with very little signage pointing the way there or telling you you've arrived.

In Scotland - Culbin is an eerie place

Culbin is an eerie place at times, wandering through silent lichen-clad pine forest planted over the dunes, some of which are sizeable (the largest about 35m high), and in other places across beach-stones, now a forest floor.
