This is an amazing place, wonderful artistic work done by Six artists - Timid, Remi/Rough, System, Stormie Mills, Juice 126 and Derm. They were given the freedom of the deralict village to create all this wonderful art. I have enhanced and created my own effects to brighten up the images that have affected by time and the weather. "Polphail
was built during the early 1970s to provide accommodation for up to 500 workers at a nearby oil platform construction yard in Portavadie
, but was never occupied because the yard never went into production.
There have been numerous proposals to create timeshare facilities on the site of the derelict village over the years, but all have failed to attract sponsors. A further proposal reviewed in 2006 projected a village which could rival Tighnabruaich in size, with a marina for up to 250 vessels." Source Wiki
"The Ghostvillage Project was created over 3 days on the west coast of Scotland. 6 artists - Timid, Remi/Rough, System, Stormie Mills, Juice 126, Derm - were given free reign to paint in an abandoned 1970s village." source scottishgraffiti.com
