    Default Hospital In Aberdeenshire July 2014/ Aug 2015


    Hi,
    This is the 2nd time at this location for me. Went to show my friends around and didn't take any pics but I will post ones from my first visit a few years ago, not much has changed.

    A bit of history:

    The hospital was built in 1900 for tuberculosis patients, when TB died down it served as a luxury hotel but was taken over during the war to server as a billet for troops. Finally it was used as a nursing home for the elderly before being closed in 1998. Has sat empty since, surprisingly good condition for being derelict for over 16 years.

    Outside shot to get an idea of the size of the place:


    Some areas are in pretty dire state while some are completely damp free and safe:


    All the weird things you find:




    Shame that people feel the need to break cool items:

    Its totally destroyed now :(

    This was particularly creepy, found in a pitch dark basement:




    I think we have?


    Stained Glass, Broken Glass & Glass:





    This is how close the new facility and the public are to the site we are exploring:


    Basement tunnel leading to nowhere, very cramped smelly and full of big spiders


    View out of the tower:


    Nobody is Watching:


    Shot going back to the car:


    Thanks for looking.. this is only my 2nd post so suggestions/ improvements are welcome.

    I believe that this former hospital was featured on the TV program Restoration in a bid for funding. I don't think it won and by the looks of it not going to restored anytime soon. The main construction of the building is wood and is or was listed.

    I have seen a lot of photos of the outside of this building but never any of the interior. A very good post. Thanks.
