    Default Birkwood Childrens Hospital, Lanarkshire May '09


    Birkwood was our last explore in Scotland, the heavens had opened and we were all tired and fed up. Our spirits were lifted as we gradually neared the magnificent main building.

    Eventually we were inside and soaking up the grandeur of this slowly deteriorating building. The two tower staircases were quite possibly the most impressive i had ever seen - unfortunately the handheld photos didn't quite do them justice.

    A great explore, and a fantastic end to the trip. Note the basement hair salon!

    Visited with Jaff Fox, Lost and Havoc. Kate stayed in the dry!

    Please excuse Olympus C750 photos! They looked better on the camera screen.

    AHHHHHH this is the place which reminds me of the exterior of Ury House in Aberdeenshire.
    I'm pretty sure it was the same architect.
    Looks decent, GOod Job

    It really is a stunner and would be one of my ideal homes if it wasn't in such a bad area. Some lovely features I not seen from here before. Did you go in any of the outbuildings?
