Totally new explorer, looking for somewhere interesting. Im thinking about either Sunnyside or Hartwood as a first exploration, as both are within driving distance. Are they both still accessible? Would either be better than the other? TIA!

Hey Hey :)

Hartwood Hospital is blocked off and seems really structurally unsafe. As far as I am aware it has had 2 fires since Lanark TV bought it over. After a visit today, it looks like some development work is going on. Several buildings have been knocked down, most doors and windows are either bricked up or welded shut.

Bit of background about the site (source: Wikipedia):
It was a psychiatric hospital located in the village of Hartwood near the town of Shotts in Scotland. It was opened in 1895 and closed in 1998. Originally known as the Lanark District Asylum, the facility was opened in 1895 with a capacity for 500 patients. The complex included staff-houses, gardens, a farm, a power-plant, a reservoir, a railway-line and a cemetery. Although briefly used after 1998 by Lanarkshire Television, the buildings subsequently fell into disuse. There were major fires in 2004 and 2016 leaving the building substantially damaged.

Hope this and the photos below help.

Still very much railway works going on but they don't seem to care if you wander around. At the north west of the main building fence there is a gap you can fit through if you are slim enough, it's not a big gap. All lower level windows and doors are closed off and I didn't fancy a climb, but accessible if you are keen.

Can you still get up the towers now? I’m planning going back for an internal visit, before there isn’t much left.

Nope. It’s a risky job getting into the 1st floor. I wanted to get up as well, but where I don’t normally mind climbing razor wire, barbed wire, 8 foot fences and the likes, unfortunately I had no luck getting anywhere near the top of the towers.

Stay safe.
