Inside sex predator Jimmy Savile’s creepy derelict home once raided by police
May 4, 2021
The shocking state of Jimmy Savile’s Highland house has been revealed by urban explorers who shared a rare glimpse of the property online.
Jimmy Savile was an English DJ, television and radio personality who is believed to have abused up to 1000 children, with some as young as 9, police claim.
Some of the abuse reportedly took place at his Glencoe home, which was used as a retreat for the disgraced star up until his death aged 84 in October 2011.
The property is now a shadow of its former self and pictures of the house show wrecked rooms, strewn debris and discarded objects litter the home.
An urban explorer is understood to have accessed the property through a window and shared pictures of the home to the Abandoned/Derelict Scotland Explores group on Facebook, the Daily Record reported.
The room is a shell of Savile’s once cosy living room, with smashed glass on the floor bin bags, and broken bits of wall on the floor.
Savile’s kitchen appeared to be ransacked, with grime covering the inside of cabinets the floor and the counter tops.
Objects such as a can of drink, empty boxes and parts of broken drawers also can be seen in the picture, with more broken glass covering the sink.
Scorch marks are also all over the walls in the snaps, with bits of plaster and the side of the bathtub ripped off the bathroom wall.
The property would have made a nice home but it is claimed some of Savile’s alleged abuse took place there.

Scotland Yard even searched the property after his death, looking for evidence of his sordid crimes.
In October 2012, the words "Jimmy Savile the Beast" and "Worst Beast" were painted on the house and there were calls for it to be demolished.
An enquiry found Savile also abused children in at least two children's hospitals, including Stoke Mandeville Hospital (Buckinghamshire Healthcare NHST) and Leeds General Infirmary (Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHST).
Builder Michael Canny from Glasgow now owns the property but it is yet to be lived in and continues to be vandalised.
