    Default Booth House and Occupational Therapy-Sunnyside Royal- July 2018


    Visited this immense site recently but was not able to access whole site. Itís now pretty well locked up tight. Couldnít find much information on what I accessed but here is some history of the hospital.

    Sunnyside Royal Hospital, was built in 1855-7 on a hillside site 6km north of Montrose to replace the old Royal Asylum in the town. The new site was further developed in 1888-91 when a hospital block, designed by the architects, Sydney Mitchell & Wilson, was built to the north-west of the main building, and a large villa, Carnegie Lodge, was added to house private patients. Another two villas, Howden Villa and North Esk Villa, were built in the early 1900s to provide accommodation for pauper patients, and a nurses' home was constructed in 1935.



    The Royal Asylum of Montrose was founded in 1781 by Mrs Susan Carnegie of Charlton for the treatment of private and pauper lunatics, and was the first purpose-built psychiatric institute in Scotland. Prior to this, insane patients had been housed in the Old Tolbooth in the High Street. In 1858 the asylum was transferred to Moffatt's new building on the lands of a farm at Sunnyside. The new building cost £27,513, and was built in the Jacobean style Moffatt often adopted. When the lease of the farmlands expired in 1911, 52 acres were purchased for the hospital at a cost of £4,500.

    Yeah, only took me hours lol. The imgur site had gone to mobile, I had to delete the app to go desktop and it then allowed me to do it. :-)

    Aah yes, something I probably could make more clear, the instructions are all for PC/Laptop, not mobile devices.

    Don't worry about security until you've been caught.
