I recently undertook a rather brilliant four day trip to Scotland and saw some great places. East Fortune Hospital is a location I had wanted to see for practically as long as I've been doing this weird hobby so I was very pleased to finally tick it off. After leaving Oxford at 1am it felt fantastic to be outside here seven ish hours later, and a real nice easy one to kick off the trip.

I can't remember the last time I saw photos from here online, it had been so long I had completely forgotten what the inside looked like.

[East Fortune Hospital was a Tuberculosis sanatorium for the south east of Scotland founded in 1922 when a World War I naval airship station at Drem East Lothian was converted into a hospital. For the duration of World War II the patients were accommodated in a hutted annexe at Bangour Hospital. East Fortune Hospital became part of the Board of Management of East Lothian Hospitals in 1948. In 1956 as tuberculosis patients began to decrease in number, mentally handicapped children were admitted, followed by adults three years later. The hospital became part of the North Lothian District of Lothian Health Board in 1974 and was closed in 1997 following the transfer of patients to Roodlands Hospital in Haddington.
Sadly only a few buildings are accessible, but the ward buildings are very repetitive so we probably didn't miss too much that was different in each. The boiler house is awesome however, all decayed and overgrown with minimal damage.

Thanks for looking :)​

Wow, the place wasn't this trashed when I visited it.. Lots of asbestos warnings around the site however it seems that most of it was removed judging by the lack of ceilings and floors.
