Visited with Urban Shadow and friends, this little hospital near Glasgow cared for chronically ill patients from 1876 to it's closure in 1995. The condition is now ruinous - you have to be very careful as the floors are falling in all over the place.

It was once a very elegant building:

With big south-facing sun lounges for the patients:

Inside, this is one of the less-decayed rooms:

Wards still have beds in place, though:

With all the windows broken, the sun lounges are now growing a fine crop of moss:

In a cupboard, a reminder of old methods of patient care:

I didn't look inside:

Next to the x-ray machine:

The kitchens have seen better days:

In the laundry, a hand-knitted child's jumper:

There's also a fine collection of graffiti - other signs read "Dog's Inside" and "Plague", but this was my favourite:
