Well, the developers havent touched it yet.... just the neds and mother nature (and a used tyre dumper). Flickr set here
Click to enlarge
Main entrance gatehouse


Bear enclosure (closed before the zoo was)


Avery


Monkey enclosure (not 100% but most likely)


Snack Bar


Plenty more on the flickr set with descriptions of what they may have been.
Believe it or not, but the zoo's webpage is still online! States clearly that its closed now and the site is for information only. http://www.glasgowzoo.co.uk/articles/

Yup it was a good wee wander as the weather was nice and clear with the added bonus of actually getting to put faces to names.

Actually thinking it would be great for photos just at sunset but then the local vampires would no doubt start to surface.

The Gatehouse


The Gate



Parrot House


Snack Bar


The Avery


Perhaps so the Monkey could have a shave ?
