It is as if someone just got up and walked out the door of this now-abandoned home in The Cabrach.

In pictures: A lost Scottish community that vanished from the landscape

The Cabrach was once home to 1,000 people but today abandoned homes dot this remote landscape with just little traces of human life remaining.

The old farming community was taken apart by industrialisation and the Great War with efforts now being made to piece together the very fragile history of a community that vanished from view.
