    Birkwood House, situated in Lesmahagow was originally a stately home built in 1887 for the McKirdy family. Birkwood was purchased by Lanarkshire Council in 1920 and was first occupied as a certified Institution for Mental Defectives on 3rd July 1923. The hospital officially closed in 2005 and had been left to ruin. It is now under refurbishment.
