    In the early hours on a very wet, cold and miserable day myself and JFRsteve and Scattergun found our way inside this impressive building. It was still too dark to actually see with out torches, so effectively had to sit and wait for the beginnings of sunlight too appear.

    The Category C listed Hartwood Hospital Nurses Home was designed by Glasgow Architect James Lochhead in 1926. It was designed to blend in with the 1890's Baronial style Hartwood Mental Hospital, located on the not far from this site. Originally built as Nurses Accommodation for the Hartwood Nursing staff, it was finally opened in 1931.

    In 1974, the Scottish Western Region's Hartwood School of Nursing was based here and trained the vast majority of nurses, who then initially practiced in the area.

    It was latterly home to the Bell College of Technology School of Nursing and Midwifery. The building was officially vacated in 1996.

    After hiding out on the 4th floor, this was our first view as the sun began to come up

    A couple of the top floor corridors, they are massively long

    The stairs are some of the most impressive I've seen!

    Ground Floor Corridor, this area was pretty much completely trashed, awesome!

    I think this is one of the many classrooms

    Another awesome set of stairs with the added bonus of dereliction!

    I think this was once the Lounge / Sitting Area to the front of the building

    The former Library

    Main hall complete with mini stage

    Couple shots of the front elevation, its was still heaving down with rain so this was the best I could do.

    The impressive towers in the background.

    The main stairs, epic in my eyes

    My final shot before we left.

    This building is massive in size, if only the weather was better and wasn't so tired after being up for over 30 hours I would have take more. We did head to the main building complex but a run in with a couple pikey scum then the security guard we were forced to make a retreat.
