    Visited Glen 0 Dee in early August, just not had the chance to get through all the pics, but here it is. Visited again with jfr420, was a lovely day for a explore, think it even broke 25 degrees! Unfortunately the basement is now well sealed because of Asbestos and flooding by the local neds.

    Was my first explore of this building, was very interesting to see, slightly disconcerting with a live nursing home literally 50 metres away looking onto the rear.

    Wee bit of history....

    The original building was built in 1900 and started its life as Nordrach on Dee Hospital, a sanctuary for tuberculosis patients. When TB died down it served as a luxury hotel (when it became "Glen O' Dee"), but was taken over during the war to serve as a billet for troops.

    It reprised its role in contagious diseases when the typhoid epidemic hit nearby Aberdeen in the 1960s, but its last use was as a residential home for the elderly. The original building closed in 1998, when a new purpose built building was built on the same site.
