Hi there,

I just joined this site today and have recently gotten into urban exploration.

Did a fair bit of exploring today from being out at The Old Walkinshaw Estate at Inchinnan to the Deil's Plantation off the Humbie Road between Newton Mearns and Eaglesham.

I am particularly interested in weird and unexplained sites and it would seem there are plenty of them in the Glasgow area. I am interested in the various conpiracies surrounding Rudolf Hess's "visit" to Scotland in 1941 and would like to find the site where he landed. I was out on Floors Road today but the marker stone doesn't appear to be there. Does anyone know where it is..if it is till there.? know it was smashed up by idiots some time ago. Has it been reinstated?

Any info would be much appreciated.

my understanding about the stone is, it kept getting vandalised so they decided to remove it. Others here may know more.

To be honest, I don't see why they'd want to commemorate such a point

I wouldn't call it a commemoration as such more a marker for posterity. You can't deny historic events no matter how distasteful... it's the weirdos that need checking.
How about CCTV and ID cards to enter the site... that'd be a fitting if not ironic tribute.

hi there,

thanks for the replies chaps.


I had a good look up and down Floors Road but no sign at all.

I think it is important to mark it for posterity as it was a farily significant event in the history of the War. So much speculation and conpsiracy surrounds this occasion.

It is sad that a lunatic fringe are hellbent on destroying things like markers and monuments. A stone indictating a landing sight is not an
endorsement of the tennets of National Socialism in any shape or form.

Disappointed.

There is an extensive thread on this forum about Buchanan Castle, the military hospital he was rumoured to stay at while he got his ankle fixed

Hey There.
I'm new to this forum. I came across it while looking up stuff about Rudolf.

Rudolf Hess Landed In Scotland trying to end the war between germany and britain. This is well known. The memorial stone which was erected where he landed instead of where he was SUPPOSED to land was violently destroyed (smashed to bits With a Sledgehammer on TV by ......

Anyway That is why you can't find the Stone. It was destroyed and has never been replaced for fear of bringing the violent mobs of the Left wing down on the farm again.

Sorry to hijack a thread on Hess. Chances are I would have liked him better than ***** whose politics, religion, racial ancestry mean absolutely nothing to me whatsoever. I just simply think he's a pompous self-promoting little p**ck like some of the people he represents in court - no names no pack drill.

I remember my dad showing me the crash spot. If you drive along Humbie Rd heading for the Mearns, just as you pass Floors Rd, the plane crashed about 50m into the 1st field on you right. Not sure how accurate he was.

I went to this site last year and talked to a few locals and the farmers wife. The memorial is no more just a small pile of bricks and not easy to spot. It is just behind and to the left of Floors farm as you look at it, a small track, go about 30 yards past the farm and its the rubble on your right hand side. Hope this helps.
