I had the pleasure of being taken by Urban Adventures volunteers to see the ruins of Broomhill Hospital in Kirkintilloch. This was a reciprocal event for me showing them around Mugdock Country Park and its various facilities for adventure activities.
The pictures show the team of volunteers – to whom I am most grateful for showing me round; especially Cathy who had worked at the hospital and was able to give us first hand information on what it was like when it was open. The team
are featured at the gatehouse. The second picture is of the front entrance to the hospital and with west wing extension.
Originally a private estate house it was converted into a hospital for the incurably sick in 1876. (I recommend you google Broomhill Hospital, History for more precise information).
Thanks for an interesting day, team.
