    Default Hartwood Hospital (Lanark District Asylum)


    Most of the wards and outer buildings have been demolished.

    The twin towers, main hall, and administration buildings are still standing, but are severly fire damaged. Both the clock tower and wind vane tower faces are smashed.

    The works yard, which seems to contain mortuary, laundry, boiler house and other support services is relatively undamaged.

    Tunnels remain, branching out from this section in several directions.

    This section of the hospital is protected by a steel fence.



    I think there is a nurses home further down the hill, but didn't find this out until after the visit.

    There is a house nearby, which again is fire damaged.

    A more modern single story building is nearby, which is fire damaged and empty.

    The backup generator building still stands, but doesn't have the generator anymore.

    The site was once very extension, foundations and pipe ducts run everywhere, but these must have been knocked down years ago.

    Security, with dogs, is down by the bottom of the drive. They patrol around the entire site, including inside of the fence.

    Access however is relatively easy.

    Excellent Pagan - Hartwood is 1 of my favourites. Nice to see some more photos of the place.

    Anyone wanting to go - don't be put off by how trashed it looks, its well worth exploring

    I love this place, I'm glad it's still do-able because our old access is sealed up and the only way in last time was through a piece of the fence a "scrap-metal aficionado" had gas-axed their way through.

    Did you bump into security? I hear they're a bit mental.

    I love this place also.

    You hear they're a bit mental?! You and me both know that below that fat and old exterior, that man can shift.
