    Opened in 1900 in Banchory, Scotland, this abandoned sanatorium was originally called Nordrach on Dee Hospital. Designed for the long term care of tuberculosis patients (many of whom never left alive) before the introduction of antibiotics, the hospital was converted into a luxury hotel after TB died down, taking on the name Glen O’Dee.

    The now abandoned building was requisitioned for military use as a billet for troops during World War Two and once again became an infectious diseases hospital when Aberdeen was struct by a typhoid epidemic during the 1960s. Finally serving as a care home for the elderly, the originalGlen O’Dee Hospital buildings finally closed in 1998 when a new purpose-built complex opened on the site. The abandoned sanatorium has fallen into increasing decay over the past 15-years, despite featuring on the BBC programme ‘Restoration’.
