    Default Craigtoun Hospital, St Andrews


    Hi guys, here are some scans of my visit to Craigtoun Hospital in January 2005 and some more recent digital images from June 2007. I was at uni at St Andrews from 2003-2007 and visited the exterior of the hospital (with permission) a few times. The photos are in no particular order and are all external but they may be of interest:

    What do you need permission for?
    Nice photos, good to see some more of the pre-scaffolding days.

    Interesting to see 'em, thanks for sharing

    And who thought that extension was a good idea

    I was there a few months back and it was all fenced off and work was well under way.
    In a surreal world it all makes sense

    It's a great old building. I'd have thought it would have been converted into a really extensive golf club house or something.

    It's being converted, these pictures are 2-4 years old.

    Indeed, this is of interest! All those delicious sandstone carved details. Thanks for sharing your photos with us here

    Not so sure about the horrible 1960's extension though!

    It'll just be timber preservation and first fix joinery so far, I suspect.

    From the condition of the stairwells when we visitied, looks like a lot of the character, aside from the main staircase, will be lost behind gyproc sheets.

    Shame.
